This adaptive Box hedge will grow in almost all moist, well-drained soil and thrives best in partial shade.

Box Hedges can be planted from November to March, when the hedge is dormant. Ensure that the area where you are going to plant the hedge is clear and weed-free.


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.
