Box (Buxus sempervirens) is a very popular topiary plant and ideal for planting in pots for the patio and terrace. Box is a slow to medium growing evergreen shrub which will exceed 3m if left untrimmed. It is very suitable for evergreen garden hedging as it forms a very dense green screen which can be regularly clipped.
Our Box Hedging is very hardy being grown in the northern part of the UK and will not be sensitive to the lower temperatures that badly affect much of the Box sold through the main UK DIY Garden Centres.
The current height of the plants is approximately 10-20cm and they can be planted out all year round.
