The Garden Plant of the Month: Buxus or box

The green all-rounder!

Why is box (Buxus) so popular with gardeners? Easy - Buxus or ‘box’ is a garden hero! Lustrous green leaves all year round mean that it provides permanent structure and colour. Perfect for hedging, either ornamental or functional, it works just as well as a feature plant in a central place. It’s also great in a container on the patio or next to a doorway. Add to this flexibility the special surprise that box brings, and you have all the elements that coincide to make it a star Garden Plant of the Month this April.
