If you remember, two year ago I finally realized my garden dream of planting a boxwood hedge. Fast forward 8 months and we started looking to move to Maine. Lucky for us, the new owners of our house in Ohio told me I could take whatever plants I wanted. I spent an hour digging up all the boxwood and loaded them on our moving truck.
They were nestled snuggly in our main garden in early December and crossed my fingers hoping them survive.
They all survived the winter beautifully, though they did get a little wind burn (this means I need to plant wind breaks to protect that garden space). Now that it’s time to plant the main garden, I need to figure out where these beauties will wend up. Most likely, they’ll be put in a nursery area and be moved to their final resting place this fall or next spring.
Even though boxwood doesn’t bloom and isn’t show, there’s a definite classic beauty about it. There’s something so traditional and grounding in a long row of these beautiful shrubs.
