Buxus drying out

Interesting, the leaves right at the front look like box. When I looked at the OP I thought that's not box.

Are the balls ever grafted onto anything else?

Viburnum Tinus ' Gwenllian'

Has it got any live looking buds?

The 'scrape it and see if it's green' thing is oft quoted but not entirely true. Sometimes it means it hasn't been dead long. I would have serious concerns re this plant.

Have you a photo so we can see what it looks like?

Can you id these bulbs??

When is best time to move two large choisya

Posted: 10/11/2016 at 15:11

March/ April might be better.

I have moved a large choisya but only in the sense that I dug it up and moved it away (towards a shredder). The roots are enormous and thick and I doubt if mine would have survived the move because the fine feeding roots were lost, being at some distance from the trunk. Yours may not be that big. They're very quick growing and you'd soon have a good plant if you had to start again. Check for layering first, as Verdun suggests, they're very good at that. Check all the ground level branches with a little tug and see if any are fixed.
