ice melt killing boxwoods
Due to the 100+ inches of snow we got this winter, we had to use ice melt a few times. I was careful not to get it in the flower bed that flanks the driveway, however I think my husband may have. Either him or the snow blower. My boxwoods were looking yellow so I trimmed them thinking they may have had broken branches from the weight of the snow, they are still continuing to turn yellow. There is some (a lot) of green but no new growth which I don't expect for a while yet.
I did give them a good soaking last week before I realized what the culprit might be. There are perennials in the same bed and none of them seem to be bothered, but they do set further away. Is this what happens when ice melt comes in contact with plants? Is there anything I can do?
