Root Ball Box
(Buxus Sempervirens)

Buxus Sempervirens̴Ì?is the perfect species for low hedges, borders and classic topiary with it's magnificently dense appearance.̴Ì?

Root Ball Box is fit to plant in November - March, only.̴Ì?

As it is slow-growing, Box hedging is quite easy to trim and maintain to a desired shape. Being an evergreen, it can provide excellent year-round interest, too, as well as being able to create an impressive privacy screen when grown to height.̴Ì?

It's the perfect, all-round hedge, with its ability to be used in many ways and grow in multiple shapes and heights. Box is a must-have for any gardener!

The dark, evergreen foliage will grow about 10-15cm per year, along with little, insignificant flowers in Summer- which are very popular amongst the bee family, adding a lovely bit of wildlife interest to your garden, too!

  • Growth rate: Slow (10-20cm per year)
  • Ideal height: 2.5m+ Tall
  • Soil type: Normal
  • Exposure: Coastal, inland
  • Aspect: Full shade, full sun
  • Evergreen foliage? Yes

When you receive your Buxus Sempervirens Root Ball plant, it will need to be planted within a couple of weeks or so and must be well-watered during this time. Do not allow the soil to dry out- this will more than likely damage the roots altogether.

You should only need to trim your Box hedging once/twice a year, along with adding some well-rotted compost or mulch, to keep the hedging in its best condition. A fertiliser/root grow feed is also recommended (in Spring). You can prune back young Box plants by up to one third within their first year (this will encourage a dense, bushy new growth).̴Ì?

From there on, when the plant is well-established, only prune once/twice a year within May-August.

  1. If you're not ready to plant straight away, your root balls will need to be kept moist and in a cool, dark room (i.e., garage or shed). Ideally, they should be planted straight away, but can last up to 3 days or so.
  2. Dig a hole that is several inches wider than the root ball, but about the same depth. Soak the hole with water, and sprinkle a thin layer of RootGrow at the bottom, if using.
  3. Ensure the root ball has been given plenty of water, then put the damp root ball into the soil, and begin backfilling with soil. Check the base of the stem is level with the surface of the soil, or just under.
  4. Firm the soil down lightly, then give the plant a good watering.
  5. Like all plants, it will need to be kept free of weeds and given plenty of water- its first year after planting is vital, as the plant needs enough resources to be able to settle down, recover, and establish.

Root Types Summary

  • Bare Root
    Bare Root

    Field grown, bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from autumn to spring. We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the season but they can be pre-ordered in summer. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options.

  • Pot Grown
    Pot Grown

    Pot grown plants can be planted year round and make a convenient option. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements.

  • Root Ball
    Root Ball

    Also field grown, root ball plants are scooped out of the ground using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks. They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly.

  • Instant Hedging
    Instant Hedging

    Grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season. Our instant hegding troughs create a dramatic, instant hedge effect.
