Decorative Box more information

Box and topiary are pretty well synonymous and we provide these practical and hardy plants in the two most popular geometric forms

Decorative Box Balls and Decorative Box Pyramids.

Box Pyramids are more usually grown in containers, but this is purely down to aesthetics and there is absolutely no reason why they should not be planted into the ground. They can be particularly attractive at the ends or corners of rectangular beds.

As stand-alone specimens, they make excellent plants to use in pairs at the end of a hedge or to frame a front door. They can also make a striking finishing touch to a formal path or add structure to any garden design, be it traditional or contemporary.

Soil and Situation: Not fussy at all

Maintenance: Trim lightly to keep in shape – but never prune in full sunlight as the cut stems will brown. Individual shoots that break the geometric line can be snipped back at any time of the year.

Versatility: Plant either in the soil or keep in a tub or container
