My most popular book is a 6 x 9 inch softcover with 123 pages and 91 color photographs, published by The American Boxwood Society in 2005. This handbook is an authoritative and comprehensive guide to proper care of boxwood. There are seven chapters: history, recommended boxwood plants, boxwood in the landscape, boxwood culture, propagation, pests, and diseases. There are five appendices: glossary, resources, species and cultivars and hybrids, bibliography, and plant hardiness zone maps.
For everyone from homeowners to professionals, this book is a good starting place for all things boxwood. Abiotic concerns are fully explained, including cold injury, fertilizing site selection, soil conditions, mulching, planting and transplanting, pruning, thinning, shearing, sanitation, watering, and commercial production. Biotic topics are also explained, including cuttings, layering, seedlings, leafminer, mites, psyllid, scale, webworm, wildlife, Phytophthora, Macrophoma, Volutella, boxwood blight, and nematodes.
