Box or Buxus hedges are one of the most popular types of hedge. The small leaf form is ideal for clipping into well defined formal shapes and can also be used for topiary. There are several varieties of Box Hedges allowing you to choose the most suited to your needs. Box hedging can be used as a simple border or used to create elaborate patterns that are a feature in their own right.
Though slower growing varieties of Buxus plants such as Dutch Box take more patience while waiting for the hedge to achieve the desired size the rewards are a hedge that is easily maintained for years afterward. Taller varieties such as English Box can be used as a screen or as a wall between garden rooms.
