Product Description

Growing English Box

English Box grows in full sun through to the very deepest shade. In fact English Box will grow with no direct sunlight. English Box is the best of the low borders when you have a border that is partly in full sun and partly in deep shade.

For perfect English Box borders and hedges, we recommend a spacing of 5 plants per metre. The secret to making perfect English Box borders and hedges is to space your English Box closely.

Often people plant their English Box too far apart and they take forever to fill in. English Box tend to shoot upward instead of outward when they are younger. If English Box is spaced too far apart there will be upside down ‘U’ shaped gaps at the bottom of the hedge. One old English gardening book said to plant English Box 1 inch apart. At Chris’ Plant Farms we have found over the years that planting English Box at the rate of 5 per metre will create a dense bushy border in just a few years without making it unnecessarily expensive to establish a border.
