Wildlife benefits of Box Hedging
The glossy, ovate foliage offers year round cover for an array of native wildlife whilst the small spring flowers attract honey bees who come looking for nectar and pollen. As the evergreen foliage is very dense, it creates a good shelter for wildlife whilst also providing a strong, low windbreak. For more choice of native hedging plants please click here
Box throughout history
A hedging plant steeped in history, buxus sempervirens and buxus sempervirens suffruticosa have been used in French and English gardens for over 400 years. Originally made popular in French parterres where flowing lines of low box hedging added structure to the formal gardens; it still dominates garden landscaping today. Both common and dwarf box have been used to create astounding knot gardens that still draw hoards of visitors every year. The easily maintained box hedging plants make great specimens for creating geometrical and symmetrical shapes, ideal for formal garden borders.
