I see in some other answers (submitted in July) that this shrub is about 9-10 inches tall when it is shipped to the customer. I was wondering if the same height could be expected of these plants if they were shipped now (during the Fall/approaching Winter). Also, what is the expected time frame to reach its mature height/width? Thank you!
Asked by: KW
Hello, yes, the Boxwood is just about the same height, 9-10" tall. This is because our crop is continually rotating; we sell out of them as fast as they become available to sell. With ideal growing conditions, the Boxwood will achieve its mature height & width in about 2-3 years.

What is the best way to prune a broken branch, or thin it out to keep it healthy?

Asked by: CS
Hello, thank you for your question. To prune a dead branch, simply bend that dead branch along with the surrounding branches downward very gently to expose its bottom end. Cut through this branch 1/4 inch above its base with a pair of pruning shears. To thin, just select a thickly leafed branch, then reach into the plant and snip the branch off 6 in. from its tip (being sure to avoid your fingers!) and 1/4 in. above a lateral branch. Repeat by selecting randomly spaced limbs for even thinning, removing no more than 10% of the total plant's branches.

Customer Reviews

1.5 Gal. Wee Willie Boxwood Shrub is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The first wee willies I had lived for 20 years The four came in good condition, full and healthy. They were pruned to about 8 inches from the soil line to the top of the bush. Still in the containers for a week and an inch of new growth already. Relied on the regional weather of almost daily rainfall with intermittent sun to take care of them. Going to use a mix of water and root simulator to plant/give them the first in-ground watering to reduce transplanting shock and encourage root growth. Very happy w/them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect specimens This miniature cultivar is very difficult to find and perfect for our Senior Center Herb Garden. It is not inexpensive, but HD on-line price was the best we could find, with free shipping for the 4 we ordered. They came quickly, from the Ohio grower, all about 8"x8" and in pristine condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product The WEE WILLIE BOXWOOD is an excellent shrub, well-packaged to withstand the delivery time. The 2 gal. version, whch has grown nicely, was cheaper than this several years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far so Good These have only been planted for several weeks so it is too early to tell how they will be over a season or year. They are a nice small boxwood for limited space.
