Boxwoods do best in well-drained soil. Use of soil ammemdments is recommended. (ie. Happy Frog Soil Conditioner). Water regularly the 1st year, especially in hot, dry weather. Feed in early spring or fall. We recommend Espoma Plant-tone. Prune if needed in early spring after frost threat to maintain shape.
