It's hard to beat the sleek and simple lines of well-trimmed quality Buxus balls, adding a smart, modern, yet classic, look to any garden.
Whether dressing either side of a classic porch or decorating minimalist decking gardens, it's hard to think of another easy to grow and versatile plant that's as good as Box. Totally hardy too, leave them out all year - they look great covered in snow too..
Grown slowly over 4 years, regularly trimmed 2 or 3 times a year to get the fabulous razor-sharp ball shape, they are super-green and fresh, and the centres have none of the brown middle die-back cheaper Box can suffer from.
The key with Box is not to let them dry out - especially when in full sun for much of the day. Keep the roots cool and well-watered. Trim with sharp shears once or twice a year, and feed with a balanced fertiliser from May to September, applied to the soil.
Start thinking of those containers you may put them in now, and take advantage of these very special quality plants.
Top tip: to avoid the ever increasing Box blight, avoid, cool, wet, damp, shady conditions - grow in sunny, draughty spots, and water the soil in the pot and not the foliage where possible.
