BOUGHT MYSELF A CHRISTMAS BOX – BOX HEDGING, THAT IS – FOURTH WEEK IN DECEMBER 2011

Mild but damp weather. Time to see if I can get some box hedging to smarten up the front garden. The border between the lawn and the driveway is only about 30cm wide. It seemed wide enough for bulbs and bedding plants when I planned it, but experience tells me it looks a bit ragged when foliage dies down. I am now reconciled to putting a box hedge along this border and keeping it clipped. So I bought three trays with 6 young Common Boxwood plants (Buxus sempervirens) in each. They are now waiting in the greenhouse for planting out during this dormant season.
