Pests & Diseases: Scale, Yellow Leaves

Cultural Notes: Needs trimming to keep compact. Requires little water once established. Thrives in a wide range of soils and conditions but prefers a sunny, open position in moist, well drained soil. Height: 0.5 – 2.0m Width: 0.5 – 1.0m If hedging, the soil must be well dug and heavily enriched with organic matter to ensure the plants thrive. Buxus like a PH of 6.5 to 7.5 PH. They don't like acidic soil. Pruning and shaping may need to be done several times during the growing season (spring/summer). Water regularly after planting until established. Be careful not to over water, as Buxus do not like too much water, or soggy soil. Feed in Autumn/Spring with a complete fertiliser. Use a Dolomite Lime to neutralise the soil, as Buxus do not like acidic soils. We recommend Richgro's Dolomite Lime.
