This evergreen is neat and dense year-round and looks lovely when clipped into more formal forms or when left to grow more naturally.Therefore, the first step when feeding a box tree is to think about where you are growing it and whether the soil or growing medium in that location is optimal for the health of the variety you are growing. Box takes its nutrients from the soil in which it grows, so ensuring that the soil is healthy is the foundation of any good feeding regime.

It is easy to choose organic options for mulch and other feeds when growing these evergreen shrubs in your garden. This feed helps to protect the plant against box blight, nutrient deficiency and bugs, which Buxus plants are susceptible to. We will always aim to meet this deadline but during extended holiday periods or times of inclement weather this time frame may be extended.These shrubs cannot tolerate remaining in a waterlogged situation and this is one of the most important factors in determining where they will grow well. If growth is poor, you can feed with an organic fertiliser such as blood, fish and bone in spring – however, this is often unnecessary and organic mulch will be sufficient to keep plants healthy and well-fed, provided your box is growing in reasonably healthy soil. A firm favourite amongst both experienced and novice Buxus growers, Buxus Feed provides: Essential nutrients to green up leaf colour Extended nitrogen release to sustain growth Dense and healthy growth Buxus is best planted in autumn or spring, and depending on where a Buxus is being planted, Buxus Feed can be used to line the bottom of a trench before planting or used as a top dressing when planting has been established.
