Now, I'm going to talk about maintaining your Japanese Boxwood. The most important thing to think about is the watering. Don't let your Japanese Boxwood dry out. Check underneath the mulch and check the soil moisture level. That's very important. Another thing is, be sure that you fertilized and amend the soil if you need to, with some compost or some top soil. Trim your Japanese Boxwood on a regular basis. Once a week or once a month at a minimum. Be sure that the mulch is at the three inch level, which is the optimum level. You may need to buy some more mulch and spread a little more. The also, very important is to shape your Boxwood on a regular basis. Once a week, once every two weeks. Probably once a month at a minimum. The worst case scenario is if you have to replace an entire plant, but there's nothing wrong with that. Just dig it up and throw in a new plant. These are just a few things to remember when maintaining your Japanese Boxwood.
