boxwood under attack?

putchika(z7 VA)October 5, 2004

My father in law is going bananas over his boxwood. The leaves are turning yellow on it and he sais that when you break open one of the leaves there are little worms in there. He thinks it may be leaf miner? He sais he has sprayed and sprayed ( dont know with what) and it has done no good. Any ideas, suggestions would be wonderful! Thanks so much, Tonia

Boxwood leaf miners are ONE of the problems of boxwood, and are certainly what your FIL has discovered at this time of year. However, there may be other problems with the plants, as well. Attached is just one of many excellant fact sheets regarding boxwood problems and how to deal with them.
