Box (buy have large dead ornamental)
I have noticed today that there is an abundance of Box trees in the
local garden centres around here in Shropshire, all sizes and shapes for
patio and for hedging and it is good to see as Box went into sharp
decline after the war with the large estates being turned into amu*****t
parks and the like and just the few big houses like Hampton Court
continuing in the tradition of Box topiary.
While browsing around I found a pack of six Buxus Sempervirons about 6''
high that needed a good drink and had a few dead leaves from frost burn
so managed to buy them for just over $1 each, each of the six has three
stems so should be seperable after a good summer of care and attention
and feeding so I will keep the three best and sell the rest off, it is
good to see that Buxus is making a comback as a hedging shrub and
