Default Trunk chop and repotting

Hi All

Is it wise to do trunk chopping and repotting at the same time? Without
really thinking, I did some really drastic pruning on a buxus, and now I'm
not sure whether I should repot now or wait a season.

thanks in advance

I have no experience with Buxus, but would not hesitate doing both at
the same time with vigorous growers like apples and Japanese maples. In
fact, whenever a deciduous tree of any consequence is collected, the
procedure involves both a trunk chop and a repotting.
