Product Information

Buxus feed contains vital plant foods and trace elements for good establishment and strong healthy growth box. The fertiliser provides an extended nitrogen release to ensure nutrients are available as the plants grow.

Directions for use:

Note: 1 small gloved handful contains approximately 30g (1oz)

Planting Buxus in permanent positions:
Buxus is best planted in autumn or spring. The ground should be cultivated to at least 8in depth for best results. For individual 15-20cm (6-8in) containers or bare-root plants, take 60g (2oz) of feed and sprinkle part of it into the bottom of the planting hole and fork in.
Use the balance of the fertiliser with the fill-in soil and firm in the plant. For hedge planting use 60-120g Buxus feed per linear metre of planting.
For larger container stock (greater than 20cm or 8in) apply 60g to the platting hole, lightly fork in and mix 60g into the fill in soil.

Top Dressing
Buxus hedges can benefit from a regular top dressing when planting in a permanent position in the ground. Apply evenly to the soil as recommended below, when the soil is moist

When top dressing containers use 1 teaspoonful per 15-20cm (6-8in) of pot diameter, working into the surface of the soil where possible.
In the spring following planting, sprinkle 60g (2oz) of feed evenly into the soil under the canopy. Repeat the application at the end of June or early July. For best results, apply during dry conditions, hoe in lightly and water well.

Buxus feed can safely be used as a top dressing for other shrubs and trees (except those preferring ericaceous soil). In March, apply 60g for plants up to 60cm (2ft); for plants to 120cm (4ft) apply 120g and for standard trees use 180g. Repeat the application at the end of June/early July.
