Buxus - Box Wood

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.
