We attended the 54th Annual Symposium held by the American Boxwood Society in May.  If you are a boxwood geek - like we are, it was a perfect mix of interesting, educational and enjoyable!   Here is a photo of Ty Tan and John W. Boyd III, the president of the American Boxwood Society.  They are observing adult Boxwood Leafminers that infested this section of boxwoods in Gail Gee's beautiful garden.  Learning how to protect boxwood against Boxwood leafminer (Diptera) and the daunting fungal pathogen called Boxwood Blight (Cylindrocladium buxicola) is essential to maintaining the boxwood we install.
