Buxus (box) hedging is a common garden hedging and topiary plant and is a ‘gross feeder’ meaning it requires regular application of fertiliser. Like other hedging plants, with constant trimming and pruning the Buxus has specific needs for replacement of nutrients. Buxus Feed is formulated for Buxus but it can be used on other hedging and shrub plants.
