Box is the ideal plant for formal low hedges or pathway edging as well as being a classic topiary plant. It has very dense small round dark evergreen leaves. It is a slow growing plant with an average rate of growth of approx 5-10cm p.a. and it should be trimmed in late spring with hand shears if possible, keeping the blade of the shears parallel to the hedge surface.
It is shade tolerant and is suitable for most soil types and sites other than wet or windy sites.
Planting distance is very much a matter of choice,patience, and budget. The ideal spacing in 8cm- 15 cm (3-6 inches). Most people space at 6 inches - 15cm Our pack of 6 plants will sow a row 0.5 to 1 metre long. The closer the spacing the quicker the hedge will be complete. Trim in June and August.
