Boxwood is very easy to propagate. In the spring, take stem cuttings, 6 inches in length, and remove the lower inch of leaves. For best effect, group five to seven stems together, as pictured, to resemble an entire plant. Plunge this group into soil that has been amended with copious quantities of peat moss or leaf mold. Pack the soil firmly around the stems. Keep the cuttings moist, and you will have new, rooted plants in about six weeks.

It may take as long as 4-6 weeks to absorb all the sulphur so re-apply monthly and keep an eye on the Ph Level Number. You want something around 5.5 to 6. If it gets lower than that, quit applying until it reverts back to 6 or above.
