Buxus sempervirens

Box hedge, Boxwood, Box

Price: €6.50

The classic and best formal hedge, traditionally used for lining paths or dividing beds in a 'parterre' garden. Plant 4 - 5 plants per linear metre to form a hedge, or 6 plants per metre in 2 staggered rows to form a wider hedge. Plant into well-dug, fertile soil, and mulch with bark or manure to keep roots moist and soil protected. Depending on your taste, clip once or twice a year. Clip twice (midsummer and autumn) if you like things very tidy. Clip once (late summer) if you prefer a looser look. 15-20cm high plant / 1-1.5L container.
