Premium Buxus Instant Hedge Zinc Trough

Always dreamt of that picture-perfect, English country manor box hedge with dense lush green foliage tightly clipped into the perfect topiaried shape? Perhaps used to separate your rose garden from the bowling green? Maybe even to line the the central pathway to the east wing thus preventing the Corgis from straying off track when taking them back to their quarters? Well, dream no longer! (about the hedge).

With the innovation of our premium instant buxus hedge you can have your dream hedge in a matter of days. Skip the years of clipping, training, feeding, watering...waiting.. for the box to slowly grow. Our experts in Belgium produce the finest buxus money can buy.

We've teamed the instant hedge up with one of our favorite zinc trough planters and we think they are a match made in heaven. The sleek, stylish metallic planters set off the lush green tones of the Buxus perfectly add a touch of modern style to your garden with a classic twist.

When the hedge reaches maturity it can be trimmed twice a year, once in late May and again at the end of August.
