Controlling Box Blight on Buxus

Box Blight is a fungal disease that affects Buxus (boxwood) plants.

To control it:

Prune affected parts: Cut out and destroy any infected branches to prevent further spread.

Improve air circulation: Space your Buxus plants appropriately to allow better air circulation, as the disease thrives in humid conditions.

Avoid overhead watering: Water at the base of the plant to keep foliage dry and reduce the risk of infection.

Apply fungicides: Fungicides containing active ingredients like cyprodinil and fludioxonil can help control Box Blight, but their effectiveness may vary
