Q:Will leaving them in a pot be ok ? And how well do they do in afternoon direct sunlight?
by|May 15, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Cindys1112, thanks for reaching out! Boxwood perform best in full sun and when planted directly into the garden. If you desire to plant them into a large, decorative container, you may have to provide additional insulation to them during colder months depending on your zone. I hope you find this answer to be helpful!

      A:  Hi Barb, thanks for reaching out! Boxwood has a mounding growth pattern, so they are naturally rounded. If you want a manicured look, some minor pruning will be required. I hope you find this answer to be helpful!

          these are perfect to go along the edge of pool. (since they are supposed to be the smaller version) it softens the look of the fence and helps keep the leaves from blowing in.

          Think twice before ordering free delivery
          Ordered these 5 super tiny boxwood on April 11th and just received them today, April 23rd. They arrived upside-down, smashed, and all the soil in the plastic bag around the base. Customer Service said to return them to my local store for replacement. The whole purpose of ordering delivery was to not be hauling around plants in my new SUV. Very disappointed.....and at $17+ apiece? You decide...

            While the shrubs were well boxed, and individually placed in plastic bag, they were shipped and packages on their sides and a lot of dirt came out of containers making very messy unpacking. It would have been better if shipped upright versus on sides.not shippers fault.

            I ordered 16 and all were fantastic. Maybe a little small but to date they have all held up really well. The shipping packaging was excellent and they arrived right on time. I am hoping that all make it to Spring in such good shape.
