Boxwood Blight

-- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

As of Friday, November 30, 2018, Johnson’s Nursery, Inc.™ has signed the boxwood cleanliness Compliance Agreement with the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP).

In July of 2018, Wisconsin DATCP made its first detection of boxwood blight (Calonectria pseudonaviculata) in Wisconsin. DATCP nursery inspectors continue working to make sure that the pathogen is contained and eradicated. Johnson’s Nursery production properties and holding yards passed inspection; Boxwood Blight was not detected at any location to date. Johnson’s Nursery has created systems to ensure plant stock, growing, propagation, and holding properties remain clean, ultimately supplying a clean, quality product to customers and end-users. Johnson’s Nursery will be propagating Boxwood (Buxus spp.) in-house in the future, but until then:

  • liners will only be sourced from nurseries with Boxwood Cleanliness Programs,
  • finished container material will only be sourced from nurseries with Boxwood Cleanliness Programs,
  • and B&B plant stock will come only from Johnson’s Nursery Field Production properties.

Effective immediately as part of a ‘Keeping Clean’ protocol:

  • Returns of plant material (especially Buxus spp.) through our Wholesale & Contractor Sales Department are no longer permitted.
  • Customers arriving for pick up may not possess Boxwood on trucks or trailers.
  • Customers touring our field and yard production, and holding yards, will be escorted by Johnson’s Nursery personnel.

We appreciate time, attention, and cooperation from all our clients and partners. Johnson’s Nursery trusts the Wisconsin DATCP as an adviser on boxwood blight. Keeping Clean and Boxwood Cleanliness Programs are developing as this disease proves to be an issue for Wisconsin’s green industry and landscapes. Be on the lookout for warning signs. Symptoms and pictures of boxwood blight are available in the following resources:
