Commonly Asked Questions:

How do I care for my English Box Topiary Balls?

Several small prunes a year will keep English Box looking in a neat and clean shape. Use sharp sheers and keep standing back to get a better view of the shape you are creating. Using a ruler / height guide is an easy way to achieve a constant height if you have several plants you in your garden. Water and fertalise the plant well after a prune. Using a quality product such as Top Buxus  is a great way to keep your English Box in good health. Alternatively a slow release fertaliser will also work well.


Can I keep a English Box Standard in a pot?

Yes you can, you may find in a few years time you need to increase the size of your planter. Plants in pots will also dry out more quickly than they would if they were in the ground, keep an eye on the moisture level to prevent the plant drying out.
