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 rejuvenate 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.
