More Details

If you've struggled with box plants previously in your garden, give this a go instead. It's a compact, well-behaved plant that's as tough as old boots, will grow on most soils and is slow growing, so doesn't require a lot of TLC. It’s excellent for edging borders or paths, or creating a parterre garden without the worry of box blight.
