It's Easy to Plant your Wintergreen Boxwood


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Wintergreen Boxwood.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Wintergreen Boxwood gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Wintergreen Boxwood again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

what to do when boxwood turns yellow?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2014
Best Answer: This could mean a few different things. If the leaves are also drooping like they look heavy then your boxwood is being over watered. If the leaves are dry, crisping and curling upwards then the boxwood is being under watered. Wintergreen Boxwoods need an inch of water a week, and ha problems if they sit in standing water.

Check your plant closely for insects. They can also cause the leaves to turn yellow. If you see any visible bugs or signs of bugs apply seven dust or an organic pesticide to your boxwood.

If you're giving your plant to correct amount of water and there's no sign of bugs give your boxwood some acidic fertilizer.

Is it rabbit resistant?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: If a winter is harsh and food is sparse rabbits and deer will eat anything! However the Wintergreen Boxwood isn't preferred by them. I would classify it as rabbit resistant because it isn't their first choice and they will eat other plants first.
