Box (Buxus sempervirens) instant hedging or Boxwood is a British native plant. Being evergreen you will have a dense foliage all year round of small dark green leaves. Box will thrive in all locations, even in complete shade and can grow in most soil types, even thin chalky soils, unless they are very wet or exposed to cold winds.
Being a slow growing species, it is easy to manage, needing only occasional trimming and its slow growth makes it ideal for trimming into smart geometric shapes as well as being ideal for forming Parterre gardens, Knot Gardens and Potager gardens.
Thanks to its dense foliage, it responds well to being pruned and shaped. If left untrimmed, it will develop into a bush that is wider than it is tall and can, over a long period of time, reach heights of between 5 - 7 metres but in most cases it will normally grow up to between 2 - 3 metres.
It has a universal appeal for border edging in large formal gardens, as well as in the smallest town gardens as topiary and other shapes. Box is used as the framework for formal designs and only the English Yew can match its versatility.
For the best results, trim Box (Buxus sempervirens) instant hedging with sharp hand shears and choose a dry day with no more than a gentle breeze. If planting alongside other plants, it is advisable to leave a small gap to allow air to circulate freely to maintain the plants health.
