They do create a great perspective in the garden DD.... I've had 2 the same shape for quite a few years... Sadly lost one last year, probably due to the drought. I also think mine was trimmed too severely. .it wasn't affected by blight... Monty always suggested trimming box around Derby day.

Nice Dd ,we need some permanent structures to fill in .. the problem is we decided to have fewer pots this time , that idea doesn't seem to be working Lol ..

Amy these are planted we have far too many plants in pots!
Meadow I agree, we both like the formality it brings to the garden, we do feed ours with a special Buxus feed, sorry to hear you lost yours...OH is in charge of the pruning! I do the clearing up, and cleaning all the leaves from the middle, can cause the dreaded blight! if left!

I was going to train ours like yours but T took the shears and trimmed them into squares. He said they should be box shape!!!
