Box hedging is probably one of the best known formal hedging plants; its small, glossy green leaves are densely packed on slow growing, bushy plants. For its use in topiary it is second to none as it will tolerate regular clipping to keep it in shape and has traditionally been used in formal gardens around the world. Box plants provide low maintenance structure to the garden all year round. Height: 8m (26'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting Distance: 20cm (8"). (5 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

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.
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.
