Pruning Boxwood Hedges

Anonymous added on September 2, 2011 | Answered

I would like to trim/shape my boxwood hedges soon (September). I live in Kansas City, MO. Is it safe to trim them now? Not a hard trim but to really give them a formal look.

Pruning encourages new soft growth that is susceptible to frost damage, so hold off trimming your boxwoods till late spring if you plan to do hard pruning; light tip pruning, however, can be done any time.
