Young Boxwoods

trubritDecember 12, 2012

I have about a dozen young boxwood's. Not more than 18" in diameter. Although it rarely freezes here in Sacramento, CA.
I was wondering if there is anything I should be doing for them for the winter. Currently our day temps are mid 50's and night high 30's. Is it too late for me to give them 12-6-6 fertilizer? I read that this can be done spring or fall. And since we don't really get a winter here in the valley, I was thinking I could still feed them. I put them in the ground a week ago..

Don't feed in the winter; first feeding should be in Feb. or March. You don't want new growth to come on when it's cold.... We've been known have light freezes in winter.

Make certain you water the ROOTBALLS as needed for the next several years.
