How to plant Dwarf Box:
Dig a trench (which is preferred for Box hedging), that is twice as wide as the root ball, but the same depth. Begin by preparing the ground well, digging over the soil nicely and removing any weeds/stones/old roots. Mix in plenty of organic matter, and add a bit of bone meal into the soil, to get the very best out of your hedging.
Place the plants into the trench and backfill with the excess soil, pressing down lightly but firmly to secure the plants. Water well for the first year, thoroughly around 2-3 times per week, to help the roots establish nicely.
