Here's a very good alternative to a low growing box hedge especially if you've been troubled by box blight. Lonicera pileata grows strongly, quickly forming a dense hedge with small evergreen leaves and because much of the growth is lateral it readily fills in before becoming over tall. It's a good choice for a shady spot but dislikes waterlogging and very windy positions. White flowers for in summer and the crop of purple berries in autumn will attract birds to your garden. Trim lightly in spring an autumn to maintain shape.Potted plants can be planted any time of the year, at 4-5 plants per linear metre of hedge. Do not trim for 2 years after planting.
