What is the best fertiliser to use on boxwoods, and why?

The best fertiliser for boxwood is a granular urea fertiliser with 10-6-4 urea nitrogen. Apply fertiliser over mulch in the prescribed dose, taking care not to allow it to come into direct touch with the shallow roots of the boxwood — direct contact may harm roots, cause foliage to turn brown, and cause branches to die from the stress of the fertiliser.

When is the best time to fertilise boxwoods?

It is possible to injure a plant by fertilising in the late summer, before chilly autumn temperatures arrive, by encouraging new leaf development right before the onset of winter cold and hibernation. Slow-release, well-balanced fertilisers are excellent for boxwood, and a granular version of the urea fertiliser 10-6-4 is suggested for this plant type.

 

Is it necessary for boxwood to get direct sunlight?

They like soil that is well-drained and neutral to slightly alkaline in pH, but not acidic. In order to help keep the soil cool, mulch it with one inch or two of chopped leaves (but avoid piling it up against the stems). Boxwood shrubs are very drought-tolerant once they have established themselves. The majority of cultivars will thrive in full sun to partial shade for half of the day.

 

Do boxwoods retain their green colour throughout the winter?

The hue of certain boxwood kinds will not change from green to off-green over the winter months; however, others may change colour.

Can I grow bushes as near as possible to the property line?

The distance between the tree and the property line will be determined by the final height and diameter of the tree's crown. If a tree is small and narrow, it may be closer to the property border than if the tree is tall and wide. Furthermore, a shrub or hedge with a maximum height of 2 m (6 12 feet) must be placed at least 50 cm (20 inches) from the property line to be considered.
