Planting Buxus plants
Importantly, to plant the plants in well drained soil. This prevents the plant from ‘drowning‘. This is the lack of oxygen that can get to the roots. After planting in the spring the plants need to be watered to stimulate the fibrous roots. Especially when the weather is dry or when the weather gets hot.
It is best to prune the Buxus plants at end of June. This is the period where the Boxwood has slowed down with their growth spurt. In September you could prune a second time.
