Planting Tips & Care for Boxwood shrubs:
Dig a space twice as wide as your boxwood root ball but not deeper. Mix some fertilizer or topsoil to your soil. Never use just straight topsoil or fertilizer since it will risk increasing dampness which could make the roots decay. Including manure or topsoil will help the youthful feeder roots to spread through the supplemented rich soil. It’s a lot less demanding than if you only used the current soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. Not preparing the soil is one of the biggest reasons newly transplanted evergreen shrubs don’t survive.
When you’ve planted your boxwood, care is simple — water them frequently and revive the mulch every year. In the event that you need to prune your boxwoods to enable them to hold a specific shape, do so in the pre-spring or late-winter before new development.
