Common box makes a fabulous formal hedge forming a dense, evergreen screen of small, rounded, lustrous, dark green leaves. One of our favourite plants in our own garden designs, it’s an excellent backdrop for traditional herbaceous borders. Box is happy growing in a sunny spot but the combination of dry soil and full sun may encourage poor growth and leaf scorching.
A cornerstone of lots of gardens, the box shapes are a great way to keep structure and shape in the garden all year round. As designers we would use these staples in lots of our designs, for shape & texture and they look fantastic at corners of box hedging or to mark an entrance, start or end of the hedge.
