Thanks. Most of the boxwoods I planted this Fall were dug by me from a friend's field. He started growing 4 or 5 years ago and now he has some great plants. When i go out there, I trim them and then dig. Makes it easier to decide on matching sizes- and it looks better when I put them in. If I trim some to see their exact size and I don't dig them, no harm!
I have trimmed some from nurseries before... just depends on how leggy and bad they are when purchased.
