The Box Faulkner (Buxus Microphylla Faulkner) is great for providing you with a low hedge of one to three foot tall, or used as a ground covering plant. It is rounded in nature with small foliage that is emerald green in colour. It lasts all year round as it is an evergreen hedge.
It will produce tiny yellow flowers that are paler in shade, followed by pale green fruits that turn brown in autumn. When fully formed it is bushy and dense in nature, creating a wonderful addition to any garden or landscape as a border plant.
It grows well in either full or partial sunlight, and even in full shade it grows well. It can grow in most soils – so long as they are well drained, including loam and sand. The Box Faulkner takes ten to twenty years to reach its full height, which is normally only three foot. It can spread just under five feet too if left untrimmed. The best and traditional time to trim the Box Faulkner is in early June, close to Derby Day, to allow for new growth to establish before autumn.
When planting these lovely year round hedges we would recommend to plant them nine to twelve inches apart, so they can grow and form a neat and tidy bushy hedge.

Bare Root Hedging
These are field grown plants, lifted during the dormant season (normally November-April) and delivered ready for planting without any soil on the roots. The most cost-effective way to plant a new hedge.
