Emerging pests and diseases such as Cydalima perspectalis, Cylindrocladium buxicola or Volutella buxi are serious threats to boxwood (Buxus spp.). A Workshop will be organised in 2015-04-04 by the ‘Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte’ in collaboration with ‘Plante ; Cité’ to present the current situation of emerging pests of boxwood in France and Europe, as well as research progress achieved so far. The Workshop will take place at the castle (Château de Vaux le Vicomte), in Maincy, France. Interpretation between French and English will be provided during the Workshop. The Workshop will include lectures, a visit to the castle gardens, and a round table session to discuss future control measures for gardens.
