Butter Up Your Boxwoods
Most all of us have one plant that we love and want to use everywhere. The question is do you know how to make that certain plant love you in return? You can make just about any plant happy with a little TLC. Boxwoods are my favorite, and I love to use them everywhere from pots to hedges. Fortunately, these are not hard to keep happy (although I must confess I have neglected a few to their death.) Some tips to prevent that from happening again would be to till the soil and add nutrients to make a rich bed for the plant. Also make sure that it is in a place that it will get sufficient water and the soil can drain easily. Just about any plant will be happier under these conditions and will hopefully live long fruitful lives.
