Dwarf Box from Willows Nursery

Our Dwarf Box plants have been propagated from
our own stock plants and are raised in nursery beds
and sent out bare-rooted throughout the year.

This form of Box is ideal for creating a neat, easily
maintained, evergreen garden edging/low hedging
or knot garden/parterre design as well as being
suitable for topiary.

Please get in touch by ’phone or email if you
need any information that you cannot find here.

DWARF BOX (Buxux Sempervirens) :
Box is a slow-growing, evergreen, native plant, dense in
habit with small dark green glossy foliage. This form of Box
is a slower growing cultivar valued as an excellent formal edging/low hedging plant, as well as being suited to topiary
as it responds very well to clipping. For larger hedges (say, more than 18 inches/45cm) and topiary designs, Buxus Sempervirens (Common Box) is a more popular choice.

These photographs are from our own garden.

The two photographs above (including our daughter) show
our dwarf box maze – easily maintained as a fun low hedge.

As our need for more cuttings – to supply more dwarf box plants for sale – has grown, the plants in the maze now also act as stock plants for propagation purposes.  The photograph below shows the same maze some 10 years on, allowed to grow a bit bigger – looking a little shaggy, but ready for a good trim to provide cuttings material.

This is a new version of website and online shop for us and we hope that your purchase goes smoothly - but please get in touch with us if there are any problems at all. Thank you. Les & Anne Dismiss
