Boxwood is one of the most popular shrubs in the garden. A question that is therefore often heard: Can boxwood actually bloom? The answer is: Yes, boxwood can already bloom, but only when it is a little older (from 10 years) and is not constantly cut into shape.
Box flowers are popular with bees
By the way, the inconspicuous flowers are a really good concentrated food for bees. If you want to do something good for the insects, you should prune the boxwood only when the flowers have withered.
Pruning is possible until the end of August. After that, it is better not to prune, because the youngest shoots can not lignify until winter and then be damaged at the first frost.
