Starting to cut my box hedging . Three years ago come summer we chopped it back to reduce the height . We were worried because it took it back to bare wood in lots of places .This will be its first cut since then . It has taken three years growth to get it looking green on top again and we still have some bare wood showing . Not sure that I will try that again . No short back and sides in future - just a quick trim ! ✂️✂️✂️

Try using XenTari and Topbuxus Health mix you can buy them on line. They brought mine make to life and stopped the caterpillars 🐛 too 👍 @junebensted

Don’t think we have box blight . Just think we were a bit harsh with the crop ! Think it got a fright!

Look people . ! After a very worried few weeks of non recovering box ( after its haircut) deep down there appears to be new growth . Early days and only in a few places but I am hopeful it is the start of regeneration! Fingers crossed !

Nothing like a good haircut we did that to our old hedge a few years ago and it came on a treat👌🏻
