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. We have developed an excellent delivery system so that we can get your hedge to you safely, in perfect condition and much faster than most other hedging suppliers.
