The boxwoods that we know are mainly evergreen shrubs. They are typically pruned into hedge shapes, but they don’t have to be. It’s important to plant boxwoods in well-drained soil as they do not like wet feet. Mulch is a useful addition as they have a shallow root system; this will prevent them from drying out. Fertilize in early spring with a general nitrogen rich formula like 10-6-4.
