Description
Add some style to doorways, gates and paths! A pair of carefully positioned Box balls are the perfect way to create an elegant entranceway. These neatly clipped evergreen shrubs make a great feature planted in terracotta pots, adding formality, structure and year round interest to your garden. Buxus sempervirens is well known for its neatly clipped appearance and slow growth rate which makes it conveniently low maintenance. Supplied as 28cm (11") diameter ball in a 23cm pot. Grows up to 3m (9’) if left unpruned.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Box plants in any fertile, moist, well drained garden soil, or plant in containers of soil based compost such as John Innes No.3. Choose a position in sun or semi shade. On dry soils, Buxus sempervirens will prefer a semi shaded position. Improve poor, dry soils by incorporating plenty of well rotted manure prior to planting.
More Info
Water Box plants well until fully established. Box plants are relatively low maintenance but will require trimming once a year in mid Summer to maintain a neat shape. Choose an overcast day to avoid sun scorch. Feed and mulch Buxus sempervirens plants after pruning to promote healthy new growth.
