<Tips for growing Chinese boxwoods>
Chinese boxwoods prefer sunny spots. However, exposure to strong direct sun can cause leaf burn. Move the plants to a partially shaded area during hours of strong sunlight.
The plants prefer soil with good drainage. Choose a location with rich soil and good drainage, as poorly draining soil can cause root rot.
Water the plants when the topsoil becomes dry to avoid excessive dryness.
These plants prefer temperate climates. A moderate temperature should be maintained, and measures to ensure humidity should be taken in areas with low humidity, where leaf tips are more likely to dry out.
Prune the plants regularly as they are quick growers. Cut away unwanted branches and leaves as necessary to control the plants’ growth.
