Horticulture Research Institute’s
Best Management Practices for
Boxwood Health in the Landscape
WASHINGTON and COLUMBUS, OH – January 29, 2020 – The Horticultural Research Institute (HRI) released a set of recommended best management practices (BMPs) aimed at dealing with boxwood blight in the landscape. The new BMPs came at the request of industry stakeholders following new findings from ongoing boxwood blight research.
HRI is invested in helping the industry understand the complex nature of boxwood health. To aid growers, we partnered with the Oregon Association of Nurseries and hosted a one-day, sold-out workshop in February 2020. The workshop emphasized the importance of BMPs and cultivar selection to best managed boxwood blight. Presentation materials from this workshop are available on HRI’s website.
