Our Feedback
I am a totally satisfied customer. Who was amazed by the carefully packed tree I'd ordered only days before. Which arrived it perfect condition. I throughly approve of the paperless policy and the lack of acres of plastic in the packaging. I will now be a return customer and recommend to all my friends

An excellent substitute to Box (Buxus) and looks virtually indistinguishable. Does not suffer from Leaf Spot, Rust or Box Blight.

Do not confuse this variety with plants produced from seed that can grow at various speeds and habits (making it hard to keep a hedge neat and all one height). 'Dark Green' is a hybrid cultivar that is propagated from cuttings and so all plants will display the same habit and growth rate.

  • Evergreen.
  • Plant 10" (25 cm) apart.
  • Winter hardy if grown in the ground - container-grown plants would benefit from some winter root protection.
  • Compact habit
  • Ultimate height 8 - 12 feet (2.5 - 3.5 metres). Can be trimmed to any height above 8" (20 cm). Average annual growth rate 8 - 12" (20 - 30 cm).
  • Ultimate width 6 feet (1.8 metres) plus - but can be trimmed to any width in excess of 6" (15 cm).
  • Grows well in most soil types (including chalky and clay) except those prone to lying very wet.
  • Likes a humus rich / acidic soil.
  • Requires a well drained soil (and doesn't like to be overwatered).
  • Suitable for most aspects from full sun to partial shade.
  • Plant all year round.
  • Berries are poisonous.
  • This plant is protected by the Plant Variety Rights. Illegal propagation without a licence will lead to prosecution.

Please note that if ordering more than 10 of these plants there will be additional delivery charges, which will be quoted for.
