Buxus can benefit from regular top dressing when planted in a permanent position in the ground. Apply evenly to the soil as recommended below, preferable when the soil is moist. When topdressing containers, use Buxus Feed at the rate of 1 teaspoon per 15-20cn (6-8 inches) of pot diameter. Where possible work into the surface of the soil.

In the Spring, following planting, sprinkle 60g (2oz) of Buxus Feed evenly underneath the branches of the shrub. Repeat the application at the end of June or early July. For best results apply fertiliser during dry conditions, lightly hoe into the soil and water in well.

Buxus Feed can be safely used as a top dressing on other tree, shrub and conifer species but is not suitable for ericaceous plants.

If your box does become affected by box blight don’t panic. It normally appears as patches of brown or black infected growth, eventually turning parchment and resulting in leaf drop. Close inspection of infected leaves reveals little black specks on the foliage. At first signs spray with any general fungicide and repeat at 14 day intervals. Feed with Vitax Buxus fertiliser, water and the plants should grow through it and recover.
