I purchased this boxwood from HD I think in the fall of 2019. In April 2020, I repotted and trimmed it like crazy.



@Dragonmaster and @San Franpsycho asked me how it was doing and I'm happy to report that over the last two years it has recovered well. I did nothing to it except water and feed.

The brownish leaves are a little concerning. But that might be it just waking up from winter still.

I need to do some styling and trimming. Any suggestions on a direction?

I'm no boxwood expert, but I know that they're not exactly receptive to wire on lignified branches. They have a LONG memory. I'd suggest working with new shoots and tender growth if you intend to redirect that growth.
