The species typically grows on soils derived from chalk, limestone, usually as an understorey in forests of larger trees, most commonly associated with Fagus sylvatica forests, but also sometimes in open dry montane scrub, particularly in the Mediterranean region. Box Hill, Surrey is named after its notable box population, which comprises the largest area of native box woodland in England.
The Buxus plants arrived in exemplary packaging which was straw padded, moist and secure. Very nice little bushes in their pots. It proved somewhat tricky to remove them from their pots as their healthy root systems were bursting to get out. Now planted in their forever site and looking happy!
Last week 20 dwarf hedging plants arrived in very good condition and appear contented with their new habitat. I have just ordered a further 20 to complete my hedge.
