PLANTING AND CULTIVATION
A thorough soil cultivation and a good soil structure is crucial before your start planting. It is best to avoid planting in wet soil.
Buxus is more than just Buxus sempervirens. There are many species and cultivars available.
Buxus and especially the topiary forms require a lot of nutrition to stay nice and green. Therefore judicious fertilizing is important to obtain good results.
Buxus is one of few plants you can prune in all shapes because of its strong recuperation capacity. For tight forms pruning twice per year is advised.
PESTS AND DISEASES
Boxwood blight and the Box tree caterpillar are two of the most common problems with Buxus but they are easy to treat. The caterpillars of the Buxus moth can even be treated biologically.
