Dwarf English Box

July 10th, 2017

Two weeks ago I ordered 10 True Dwarf English Box from e-bay. They arrived and I put them in the nursery area. Boxwood is one of my favorite shrubs and I’ve been collecting different varieties. I don’t have many, but a few.

These will eventually line the pathways in the potager, I’ll need a lot more than 10. I plan on letting these grow a bit then start propagating more. Box are so easy to propagate, I have 20 new box plants growing on, a few in pots and a few in the nursery area.

Have you gotten any new plants recently?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
