Boxwood Bonsai Refinement

Bonsai Iterate

In my area of Northern Virginia, boxwood have had new leaves for six weeks or more already. Buds that were set last fall extended at the beginning of April, give or take a little, and the trees have had time to recoup some of the energy that was used for that spring push.

This is one of the reasons I think now is a great time to do some refinement pruning.
