Boxwood is a very hardy plant and grows rapidly as well. This is mostly used as an ornamental plant and is grown and shaped into a variety of designs. There are more than 70 species of boxwood. In nature, the boxwood often grows with twisted trunks and branches.
The flowers are white. Boxwood has many good characteristics that are useful for bonsai. It has the smallest leaf of all Boxwoods which is why it is sought after for bonsai. Dark green leaves that create greenery, naturally short internodes and they can take hard pruning that prompts prolific back budding. It works best for bonsai shaping because its root system is shallow and fibrous that often produces powerful surface roots and nebari and the bark is thin. Idea location for Buxus bonsai is the window sill, terrace, balcony, patio, outdoor garden, etc.
Planting And Care
- The boxwood should be positioned outside or near window in a sunny or semi-shaded place. Keep the plant indoor or outdoor with 3 to 5 hours of sunlight.
- The soil should be well drained and fertile rich in organic content.
- Poke your finger/plain small stick into the soil to check the moisture.
- Water when top soil (1-2 inches) feels dry to touch.
- Water thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering in winter and rainy season.
Application of Fertilizer
- During the main growing season feed the organic fertilizer once a month.
- Loosen the topsoil without disturbing the roots of the plant so it can uptake the nutrients and moisture easily.
- Repot the boxwood every two to five years depending on its age and size. Boxwoods tolerate root pruning well.
- Do the re-potting late evening and keep the plant in shady area for 2 to 3 days and then move the plant in its suitable climatic condition.
- Trim the new shoots leaving one or two pairs of leaves.
- If the canopy becomes very dense the leaves should be thinned out in order to let light get in, prevent the inner twigs from dying and encourage back-budding.
- Remove dead, infected or damaged plant parts and dispose them away from the planting area.
- Spray Neem, Eucalyptus or Citrus oil for any insect/pest attack, as a primary treatment.
- Don’t fertilize the common boxwood during winter dormancy.
- Do not over-water the plant especially when pot does not have drainage holes.
