Box Common Hedging

The Box Common (Buxus Sempervirens) is an evergreen hedge that makes for a great option whether tall, low, small or even your perfect topiary shape. The ever easy and versatile Box Common hedge is generally used to create low, compact hedging borders. Once grown to the desired height it is extremely pleasing to the eye, as it is so easy to cut into any shape with its small rich green leaves.

This hedge is renowned for being a slow growing variety, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that it can’t grow tall. They can grow up to thirty foot and are typically found on chalkland, with the largest natural collection in the UK being found at Box Hill in Surrey. On average it will grow four to six inches a year, and when used as a small border hedge, will sit well at a height of one to three foot tall.

These hedges can be planted and grown in most soils but prefers well drained soil, and can sit in either shade or sun. As this is a shallow surface rooting plant, it will benefit greatly from well prepared soil pre-planting and a yearly supply of mulch around its base, to help encourage growth and good health.

They are traditionally trimmed on Derby Day, which is in early June, but generally anytime during the early stages of Summer is a good time to prune. This allows for the hedge to ripen new growth before autumn hits. If trimmed later then the new growth won’t have enough time to grow and may become damaged from the first frosts. We’d always recommend trimming these hedges with hand shears so you won’t be left with less brown edges, and to plant them nine to twelve inches apart, to help for a nice, neat and dense bushy hedge.
