Product Information

It's hard to beat the sleek and simple lines of well-trimmed quality Buxus balls, adding a smart, modern, yet classic, look to any garden. Whether planted as a pair to frame a classic porch or displaying on a minimalist decking garden, it's hard to think of another variety that is as easy to grow or versatile as Box. Plus, they are totally hardy and can be left out all year, even looking great covered in snow!

Grown slowly across five years, having been regularly trimmed two or three times a year for a fabulous razor-sharp ball shape, they are super-green and fresh.

The key with Box is not to let them dry out, particularly when in full sun for much of the day. Keep the roots cool and well-watered. Trim with sharp shears once or twice a year, and feed with a balanced fertiliser from May to September, applied to the soil. Start thinking of those containers you may put them in now, and take advantage of these very special quality plants.

Plus, this variety is recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators', therefore is ideal for drawing the attention of bees and butterflies.

Supplied as an established plant in a 10L pot, 40-45cm diameter.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Box plants:

  • Plant box in autumn or spring in fertile, well-drained soil and keep it watered, especially if grown in full sun.
  • Pot-grown plants can be planted any time of year as long as the ground is not wet or waterlogged.
  • Box will tolerate shade so is great for growing underneath trees and makes superb border edging.
  • Suitable for growing in a wide range of containers, why not try your hand at a range of topiary styles and shapes - it's great as a way to get kids involved with gardening and isn't just reserved for grand estates!

 

Aftercare Advice for Buxus:

  • Besides keeping plants well-watered, box appreciates a light top dressing with a slow release, general purpose fertiliser such as fish blood & bone in early spring, taking care to avoid the leaves.

 

Pruning Advice for Box:

  • Pruning box is simple. Box is best clipped in July and August - any earlier and you risk damage from late frosts which can damage soft new growth while any later means that the new shoots are not hardened sufficiently for the following winter.
  • Old, scruffy plants can be clipped to 15-30cm of the ground (6-12in) to rejeuvinate them.
  • The small leaf size of Buxus means that you can achieve a whole range of topiary shapes and styles with the minimum of experience - box is remarkably resilient.
