Buxus Growing Information

Buxus
Boxwood

Planting:

Set out plants upon arrival, in almost any ordinary garden soil, in a sunny or partly shady location. Until they are established, young Boxes should be protected from profound heat and winter wind. Space as desired, remembering it will grow approximately 3 feet high and 2 feet wide in 10 years, if left unpruned.


Maintenance:

We recommend mulching, as a cool root zone is ideal. Keep plants well-watered. Major pruning is best done in late winter or early spring. It may also be necessary in some instances to prune again in July if growth is extensive.
