How do I tie up/support my 8' tall upright boxwoods?
These upright boxwoods were 18" tall when I purchased them 20 years ago. They are in an area in our yard which has been sadly neglected. They are now around 8'-10' tall and are in need of being tied up. I could use some help with how to go about doing this. I know that I have to put the rope into a piece of hose, or something that will protect the trunks. There are multiple trunks to gather together. How far apart shall I gather them? I don't know where to start. Should I prune some foliage away? Or, is this a plant that should be left alone, and just supported? I am surprised there is no snow damage, as they get alot of snow piled between the branches when we get a good snow. Thanks to anyone who can help.
