Each summer since 2015 Box tree caterpillar moth is decimating plants in parts of central London affecting Buxus topiary, hedging and edging. Prevention and treatment requires the regular use of organic or chemical insecticides. A proprietary control is now available which does not damage bees or pollinators.  NB unlike for Box blight, cutting back plants should not be necessary.

Having lived and professionally practised horticulture in London and the Home Counties for over 15 years, Emma is able to successfully treat and prevent Box tree caterpillar moth and other Box pests and diseases.

Contact Emma for a consultancy visit or online advice including diagnosis, biological and/or chemical control, prevention and the use of alternative plants.
