In the second part of Monty Don‘s box blight video from Gardeners’ World, he takes action to rescue his diseased box hedging. Armed with a hedge trimmer, he demonstrates how to cut out the blight-affected growth, explaining how and where to cut, and why this should help to save diseased box plants. Afterwards, he shows you how to clean your tools and what to do with your clippings to avoid spreading the blight spores to other unaffected box plants.
