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.

As seen at recent CBS show. Both Buxus were in flower but towards the end of their season.
