How To Use Vitax Buxus Feed:
Planting Buxus in Permanent Positions:
Vitax Buxus Feed is best planted in the spring and autumn. Cultivate the ground a good spade's depth to achieve the best results with this product. For individual 15 - 20cm containers or bare rooted stock, sprinkle 60g of Buxus Feed into the bottom of the planting hole and lightly fork the Buxus Feed in. Use the balance of the fertiliser with the fill-in soil and firm in the plant. For the planting of hedges, use 60 - 120g of Buxus Feed per linear metre of the planting trench. For larger containers that are greater than 20cm, apply 60g to the bottom of the planting hole and then fork it in. Lastly, mix 60g into the fill-in soil.
Buxus hedges can benefit from a regular top dressing when planted in a permanent position in the ground. Apply to the soil at the recommended rates below, ideally when the soil is moist. When top dressing containers, use Buxus Feed at the rate of one teaspoonful per 15 - 20cm of pot diameter. When possible, work the Buxus Feed into the surface of the soil.
Following planting in the Spring, sprinkle 60g of Buxus Feed under the branches of the shrub. Repeat this application at the end of June or early July. To get the best results from Buxus Feed, apply the Buxus Feed during dry conditions. Then, lightly hoe into the soil and irrigate thoroughly.
In March, apply 60g to plants that are up to 60cm in height. For plants at a height of 90 - 120cm in height, apply 120g and for standard trees use 180g of Buxus Feed. Do a repeat application of Buxus Feed at the end of June or early July.
Store Buxus Feed in a dry place away from pets, children and food. Wash your hands after using as the product may irritate cut or broken skin. Do not exceed the application rates recommended. Any spillages need to brushed off paths and paving after application.
Read the directions of use on the product label before using.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
