Boxwood Shrubs

Should I Snip Off or Trim Yellowed Leaves From My Boxwood

Adelejune added on April 25, 2014 | Answered

Boxwoods have yellowed on top probably due to winter winds. Do I snip them or trim them now or leave them alone hoping that they will recover with more green growth this summer. How should I treat them now?
