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.

Caring and Maintenance

After planting it is important to ensure that the hedge does not dry out and the soil should always be moist. While the hedge is young it can be cut back by one third which encourages bushy growth, and trimmed between May and August. When the hedge reaches maturity it can be trimmed twice a year, once in late May and again at the end of August.

The box hedge can be scorched by sun and strong winds so it is important to ensure it has reasonable shelter.
