Are there any specific care guides for this species available ? I ask because the growth on my tree is pretty long , but I've been warned against pruning at certain times . Also I can't find a decent guide to promoting ramification in this species - as it has a very specific leaf growth pattern I figured I needed to look at some pretty specific information !
Any help would be greatly appreciated on pinching and pruning the boxwood ! Many thanks
Oh , and I'm from the uk

But there's monthly events at the Birmingham gardens so I'll try and get over there soon ! I appreciate the advice , and I'm ready to start chopping , but I have one concern . This buxus sempervirens has been well established and is budding healthily , but I got the tree from Graham potter at kaizen bonsai , and he has advised me never to prune back hard until September as doing it earlier will severely weaken the tree . Is there reason and logic behind this as I don't doubt graham but I'm inundated with conflicting information and it's confusing as hell !!
Many thanks !
