Saunders Brothers hosts Boxwood Boot Camp

Registration closes May 20 for the limited-attendance June 2 event.


NewGen Boxwood and Saunders Brothers are hosting a "Boxwood Boot Camp" with proceeds to benefit the American Boxwood Society. 

On June 2 (rain or shine) at the Saunders Brothers nursery in Piney River, Virginia, attendees will take a deep dive into all things boxwood. There will be an emphasis on cultural practices for success. This in-person, day-long program is designed for landscape and retail professionals, public garden horticulturists, and serious boxwood enthusiasts. Note: this is not a “beginning gardener” event.  

Highlights include:

  • Behind-the-scenes tour of field and container production of top-quality boxwood.
  • Sessions and education stations featuring cultivar selection, planting and maintenance tips, pruning, pest and disease diagnosis and management.
  • Includes lunch and closing social event with dinner:  – Barbecue, Beer, Bluegrass, and Boxwood!

The cost is $250 per person – proceeds benefit the American Boxwood Society.

Attendance is limited for the best experience.
