Winterkill & Boxwood

In our cold and crispy climate it is little wonder there is going to be a certain amount of winterkill. Boxwood is a plant that most people don't think grows here (in zone 3 Calgary) but - in fact -  it can be quite good in a sheltered east or semi-shade location. The tiny bit of winterkill showing here is easily removed at this time of year. Check out my Calgary Herald article on May 15 for a full article on spring pruning to remove winterkill and other such things.... Yes it is gardening season again at the Herald so don't miss out.

Hi Donna
Would you recommend planting a hedge of Calgary Boxwoods and do you know a garden center in Alberta that sells them?
