Not long after seeing this video I went of to the garden centre and bought a smallish box shrub. It was not pruned yet into any shape and I chose it by looking at the stems in the middle and whether there were a couple of strong ones there. At home I started pruning, hard. leaving only little tufts of growth at the top of the stems and eliminating a good amount of stems completely. It had a bit of a shock turning the edges of the leaves yellowish but soon after started growing. For this year I have put it in a larger pot filled with lovely nutricious soil, hopefully stimulating the box to put on a big flush of growth this year. The shape of the stems on this shrub is rather upright. So today I wired some of the more pliable stems to bend more to the outside into a cup like shape. I am not yet sure what sort of shape I want it to be in the end but moving some branches away from the centre seemed like a good idea. I am also starting again with nipping of the buds from the stems since we want to keep them bare. It will be a couple of years yet till it resembles anything like the box from the clip. This year I will only roughly be pruning the tufts into globular shapes starting somewhere in May.
