Is this Box Blight?

This is a newly planted (this Summer) Box which has developed this dry/brown patch at the top - I'm worried it might be Box Blight but am not sure - can anyone advise please?  If so, do I need to ditch the whole Box Ball or can I cut out the dead/dying bits?


  • Sad to say that it probably is. There is a product  called top box which will help.  Do check that there are no caterpillars as the other big pest of box is box moth.  They can have several broods a year.  If you have them you will need to spray with something containing Deltamethrin, eg provanto.
