Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews

Buxus sempervirens is one of the most useful evergreen shrubs in the garden! Its small, glossy green leaves are densely packed on slow growing, bushy plants. A stalwart of the cottage garden and stately home alike, Box has traditionally been used to form neat Box hedges, border edges and fabulous topiary. Well loved for its ability to withstand regular clipping, Box plants provide low maintenance structure to the garden all year round. Height and spread: Up to 3m (9') if left unpruned.

Flowering Months
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. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes.
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.

Very Nice Plants 2016-07-27

I have ordered 6 of these over the last couple of years and will admit, that I have been pleased with them all! They look great in my front garden. So this year I purchased 2 more for the back. They always come well boxed and quite moist. But would recommend that you unbox and soak in water for a few hours. I purchased these from Thompson & Morgan, but on Tesco vouchers. Only one negative, is they take 2 - 3 months to arrive. But well worth the wait!

T&M replied on 2016-07-28: Thank you very much for your review. I am glad that you have been happy with your purchase. I hope we can continue to be of service to you in the future.
