It's hard to beat the sleek and simple lines of well-trimmed quality Buxus balls, adding a smart, modern, yet classic, look to any garden. Whether dressing either side of a classic porch, or in minimalist decking gardens.
Totally hardy too, leave them out all year - they look great covered in snow too! Grown slowly over 4 years, regularly trimmed 2 or 3 times a year to get the fabulous razor-sharp ball shape, they are super-green and fresh, and the centres have none of the brown middle die-back cheaper Box can suffer from.
You may buy cheaper, but not better we are sure. The key with Box is not to let them dry out - especially when in full sun for much of the day. Keep the roots cool and well-watered.
Trim with sharp shears once or twice a year, and feed with a balanced fertiliser from May to September, applied to the soil. Start thinking of those containers you may put them in now, and take advantage of these very special quality plants.
