The Box hedge plant (Buxus Sempervirens) is the most popular species for luxury low hedging. This evergreen hedging plant is perfect for hedges from 50cm up to 1.5m and is ideal for topiary. Box hedging plants have very small, dark green leaves so they're easy to clip into a formal, neat shape and because Box plants are slow growing, you don't have to clip too often - once a year is adequate - or twice if you're really neat! Box hedge plants are surprisingly tough, standing up to almost all soil types, shade and drought, these bushy hedging plants lend themselves to edging pathways, formal hedges and decorative knotted hedge gardens. Grows 10-20cm per year. Available in packs of 8 or 16 potted plants. Supplied in 2 litre pots.
Potted Plants are a more developed plant as their root systems are not disturbed during the lifting and planting process. They can be planted year round and if necessary can be left in their pots for several weeks before planting if you are unsure as to when you will be able to get round to doing the work; all they need is a little water to keep them happy. As more mature plants you don’t need quite as many per metre as the bare root plants (normally 3 to 5 would suffice depending on how dense you require your hedge and how quickly you need it to look established). Pots are a great way to create a new hedge effect more quickly.
