Buxus Ball Duo 5L Potted Shrub
Used for centuries in UK royal and castle gardens buxus-ball topiary is still very much en vogue and you can replicate this royal look in your own home easily with our buxus-ball plants, giving you that gratifying feeling of grandeur 12 months of the year.
Place 1 plant in a pot which is 12in (30cm) in diameter and its deep green, dense all –year-round glossy leaves will clearly guide your visitors into your grand garden. Repeat for your second plant and position one plant on either side of your door.
An easy-care shrub, trim your buxus-balls with shears once a year in spring into a neat spherical shape and feed with fertiliser such as Marshalls Shrub and Tree Plant Food Concentrate.
We recommend you plant buxus-balls in several dark containers around doorways and dotted around on the patio or balcony, topping the compost with small white glittery stones for a modern feature, not out of place at the top flower-shows.
