I have two shaped Buxus trees and I purchased them requiring a little tlc, I have an indoor swimming pools to which the ambient temperature is around 90d, would it be beneficial to put the Buxus in there throughout the winter to hopefully bring them into a really good condition for the spring??
Many Thanks



No, I wouldn't have thought so - Buxus are fully hardy outdoor plants, and won't respond well to high winter temperatures. Keep them somewhere sheltered from north and east winds, preferably a south facing spot against a wall, till next spring when growth begins anew.

As Bamboo says definitely not a good idea. You are more likely to kill them with kindness... Just follow her advice.
