    Last year a customer had me cut a long hedge of boxwoods down about 6-8+ inches so she could get the house painted. Yes they were sticks on the top. This year they haven't grown back as much as I hoped. They are dying slowly and the hedge has holes. Is there a specific fertilizer or soil amendment to help these plants?

    Try a handful of Holly-Tone (you can pick it up at a local garden center or Home Depot) around each individual plant. This should give it a little bit of a growth spurt. It can only help.
