Free Landscape Boxwood material

My wife was on Facebook last night and saw a post of a homeowner in our area looking to get rid of 6 large landscape boxwood. I of course jumped on it in the chance they had some potential. I got them dug up and found 3 of them having massive trunks:) this is my first collection and hoping the boxwoods are resilient enough to tolerate the mistakes I am sure to make. I’ll post updates as I progress through the process.


extremely resilient, they shouldn’t even skip a beat on what you got out for root mass.


How cool is that. I wish people would post stuff like that here. Looks like potential material, time to start digging into the boxwood video’s

Got them into wood boxes and started cutting back.

All pruned up with no where to go:) (greenhouse is full)

Definitely watch the Rodney Clemens boxwoods streams while your waiting on them to get strong. The guy is the boxwood guru!

Greenhouse looks nice is that a prefab kit?

Actually just finished it! Great video:) yeah it’s a prefab kit greenhouse. In retrospect I should have built one myself. This think cannot hold heat. Have to constantly heat it at night:/

Like a pro. That was a good amount of foliage to remove. Regardless boxwood are resilient. Depending on how much soil is removed I let the trees get established for a year sometimes two before doing aggressive work.

Start looking at boxwood Bonsai and spent lots of time thinking about primary and secondary structure for the next step.

I really like to spend a lot of time before tree design.

I rarely do a complete makeover in one session like is so often shown on Bonsai videos.

Great score on those trees.
