Box Plants

Varieties of Box - Buxus Species

Box is evergreen, shade tolerant and easy to maintain. The Boxwood tree or Common Box, Buxus sempervirens, and the slower growing Dwarf Box, Buxus sempervirens Suffruticosa, are classic hedging plants for low hedges, topiary, knot gardens and parterres.
Dwarf box is best for very low, decorative work, while a Common box hedge can reach about 9 metres tall over the years. A Common Boxwood tree has a shaggy, mop-headed canopy and most of its trunk is covered in short side branches down to the ground.

Delivery information:
The planting and delivery season for bareroot Common Box plants is November through to March. Pot-Grown Box is more expensive, available in larger sizes and it is delivered year round.
Dwarf box is only delivered pot-grown.

Having not previously ordered plants from Ashridge trees I decided to place 1/2 my order of raspberry and strawberry plants with yourself and similar quantities from Marshall Seeds. This was on the 26th February 2015. One week later your plants arrived carefully packaged in a substantial cardboard box and in perfect condition. By way of comparison the plants from Marshalls took 3 weeks to arrive, were poorly packed with plants piled on top of each other and delivered in a brown paper sack. The plants themselves also seem to be of poorer quality. Quality plants, excellent delivery/packaging and at a price equal to if not better than competitors. Thank you for the plants. I will certainly be ordering from you again. A very satisfied customer,
