Boxwoods

Fountainville Pa18901


Boxwoods are one of many broad-leaved evergreens popular in the Landscape. Boxwoods can be true aristocrats of your landscape. These plants require little attention and develop into long-lived hardy plants with a little protection just being mindful of their preferences for conditions. Avoid sites that have wide fluctuations in temperature ,long dry periods, drying winds, and intense bright sunshine. These evergreens are well worth your efforts. In return these plants are naturally offensive to deer. Liberal use in your landscape makes your garden less attractive for the deer. Boxwoods drop few leaves at any one time making them a clean plant with little mess. Boxwoods seldom become overgrown and are relatively pest and disease free. These plants love a rich, well drained soil. Using aged compost to modify the soils helps improve poor existing soils. Protect the boxwoods from winter injury by planting them on the protected north and east sides of buildings or where they will receive wind protection from natural features such as other trees or embankments. Fertilize boxwoods only in the spring. Avoid winter scorch on plants by watering if rainfall is deficient. Plant larger plants if you expect winter hardiness to be a factor. Large plants have more reserves and can usually survive the first year after purchase better. Boxwoods will add year round interest to your landscape when located properly and provide contrast within your landscape in all seasons. See How We Dig Many of Our Evergreens. We can also deliver and plant to most East Coast areas.

    Did you know that you can grow boxwood in a wide variety of soil types as long as the pH is alkaline or slightly acidic and the soil is not compacted or poorly drained? If your soil is acidic, you will need to add dolomitic lime to bring the pH up to the range of 6.5 to 7.5. Internal soil drainage is critical for boxwood. It grows poorly on heavy, compacted soil or in areas where the roots might be waterlogged for long periods of time. Boxwood can be grown in full sun or partial shade and is quite drought tolerant. Winter cold limits its survival in northern gardens and special care must be taken to select a variety such as 'Vardar Valley' or Korean boxwood if you live where winters are frigid.

    Boxwood have shallow roots and benefit greatly from a layer thin of organic mulch at the soil surface. Shredded hardwood bark is a great mulch for boxwood since it tends to increase the pH of the soil as it decays. Voles, also known as meadow mice, enjoy the protection of a thick layer of mulch and their gnawing can harm a boxwood planting, so limit the thickness of the mulch to one inch and keep it at least six inches away from the trunk.

    If you are planting a new boxwood and leafminers have been a problem, consider planting English boxwood, Buxus sempervirens 'Suffruticosa'. It is very resistant to leafminers. It also grows with a dense form and is easy to shape and trim.


    English boxwood, Buxus sempervirens 'Suffruticosa', is a popular evergreen shrub and is easy to grow. It is easily grown in many parts of the country and its needs are not difficult to meet. It has one annual need and that is for maintenance–thinning. English boxwood is widely used in hedges and accent plantings. The thick foliage of English boxwood is, however, a major factor in disease development that can kill branches. Fungal diseases such as Volutella canker are favored by the damp, airless conditions inside the canopy of its dense foliage. Infected branches first turn olive green and may gradually turn orange and then straw-colored before they die. Annual thinning brings light and air into the interior of the plant and encourages the growth of new foliage within the canopy that can take over for branches damaged by ice or snow. The best time to thin boxwood is early winter, and the branches can make great holiday decorations.
