Box is a fully hardy, evergreen, great for formal hedging, topiary and as a backdrop for herbaceous borders.
Box only needs trimming once a year in mid or late summer. Although clipping twice a year will suit those who prefer a sharper outline.
Box is susceptible to a number of pests (e.g. box tree caterpillar and box sucker) and diseases (e.g. leaf spot and box blight). These can be tolerated to a greater or lesser extent by the plant.
Box can also be scorched by sun and strong winds.
Common Box plants are of 9 cms pot size, but to reduce use of plastic we reuse our pots and supply plants wrapped in newspaper. We mix and use our own compost.
