1.5m Box Hedging 10-15cm 'Buxus sempervirens' - 9cm Pot

Buxus sempervirens, or “Box Hedging” as it is sometimes referred to is a classic evergreen hedging, perfect for low, formal hedges, borders and topiary. This dense hedge with its small, round leaves has been a key feature in British gardens for many years and its popularity is aided by its ability to grow in almost all soils. Buxus can easily be kept tidy and tightly clipped, making it ideal for ornamental gardening without the hassle of constant maintenance.

Buxus is extremely hardy and with withstand most the UK weather can throw at it. You can plant in any soil type and in any position in the garden. It’s dense foliage provides ample protection from wind and although evergreen, buxus provides year long interest through changing seasons with small flowers in the spring and small berries in autumn. Box hedging is often used in borders or as a standalone hedge and is the classic choice for topiary of any shape or size.

We work closely with our supplier of Buxus to ensure that your plants arrive healthy and as expected. They use over 100 years of experience and the latest growing technology to ensure that your hedge will flourish from the day it is planted.

What is a Rootballed plant?

Rootball plants are dug from the ground with the soil intact around the roots which are then wrapped in hessian sacking and/or mesh to keep the soil in place during transportation. When planting the hedge, do not remove the hessian or mesh as they are crucial to help reduce root damage.

Rootballed plants are only supplied from late autumn to early spring when they are dormant, as this reduces the shock of having their root systems cut and ensures the plants will grow away reliably in the spring as the weather warms up. Hedges should be planted as soon as possible after delivery provided the ground is not waterlogged or frozen. Evergreen plants should also be given protection from cold winds. After planting, your hedge should be thoroughly watered even if rain is due and then kept well watered for the first year to help establish roots. Check your plants regularly as they can become loose after heavy winds or frost.
