Hi Grant,

I purchased a Buxus Harlandii a few months ago, cut it back hard, there is a fair bit of new growth now, should I be pinching all the leaves that are not needed on the trunk?

Cheers in advance.

I tend to tip pinch the growth I want to keep all over and completely remove unwanted growth back to the trunk where necessary. Some times you almost have to dig out the growth which can leave a little damage so best to do it early and get healing from the coming season.
