Pests and Diseases of Box

    Most disorders occur as a result of bad cultural practice.

    If the plant is healthy, well ventilated and in a nutrified, well-drained soil of pH 6.5 minimum, the conditions necessary for the likelihood of disease development are reduced.

    Further cultural considerations are temperature, humidity, nutrient status, soil moisture and air content, and what we do to the plants and their environment that exacerbates or ameliorates the effects of these factors.
