These 30-40cm bare root Box hedging plants are a highly cost effective way to plant low hedging without costing the earth. As you can see in the photograph, these plants have good long roots on them to help fast establishment in the garden.

Common Box (Buxus sempervirens) is an extremely popular hedging plant for creating small hedges and clips extremely well. If grown as individual plants they are highly popular plants to use for topiary (see our topiary page).
A Box hedge is evergreen and produces a mass of small green leaves and grows well in many situations. It produces a thick hedge suitable for garden borders and for demarcating separate parts of gardens. Box will often be found in many formal gardens as it clips well and retains its shape.
Box hedging is slow growing and you should only expect around 15cm (6 inches) of growth a year. It will need clipping annually to encourage it to thicken out to make a dense hedge. Box clips extremely well and can be used to make very tight shapes.
The plants shown in the picture are 20cm apart which is the correct distance for planting out and at that spacing will create an immediate hedge.
Buxus sempervirens grows well in most soil types, including dry sites and in shade however we recommend that planting compost is used to give your Box hedge plants the best chance of establishing well in their first few years after planting.
More information about planting Box hedging can be found on the Box category page. We usually stock a range of different sizes of box hedge plants including bare root plants during the colder months of the year and container grown plants all year round.
