I have recently planted a number of buxus sempervirens round the edge of my garden in a bid to have some hedging (not too big though). I am after any tips to help it grow and establish. It has been in since May bank holiday and i have been religiously watering them every night. I planted them with blood and bone plant food so hopefully that will give them a godd start but any other tips would be great.



Seaweed extract would help them to grow new roots faster. I would also ggrraadduuaallyy water less often, and more at a time, to encourage deeper roots. Boxwoods aren't real happy about soggy soil, but they shouldn't dry out too much while they are newbies.
