Placing them in pairs on either side of a home entrance creates a symmetrical and inviting ambiance, enhancing the curb appeal.

Commonly Asked Questions:

How do I care for my English Box?

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 Spire 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. Because of their slender nature, they are ideal for companion / underplanting.

 

What is the difference between a Topiary Cone and a Topiary Spire?

The main difference between a topiary cone and a topiary spire lies in their shapes and proportions. A topiary cone typically has a rounded base that gradually tapers upward to form a cone shape. This classic design is symmetrical and uniform, resembling a geometrically perfect cone. Cones are often used for their simplicity and versatility, and they can be trimmed to maintain their shape or to create intricate designs.

On the other hand, a topiary spire has a more elongated and slender form, resembling a pointed tower or spire. While it may still taper toward the top like a cone, the elongation creates a more dramatic and elegant silhouette. Spire-shaped topiaries often convey a sense of height and grandeur, making them ideal for creating vertical accents in a garden or landscape.
