Gift of 6 Boxwood
My father just gave me 6 boxwood to put in my yard (I think it's driving him nuts that we have absolutely no plantings). I'm landscaping-challenged and an absolute black thumb. I'm surprised the boxwood haven't withered and died just by being in my presence. Where should I put the boxwood and are there any amendments I should add to my sand (I mean soil)? Any other (cheap) plantings you would recommend with the boxwood? Virtually indestructible plantings would be helpful :)
I'm heading to a nursery tomorrow to ask similar questions. My budget is pretty small. Oh and I'm told we're zone 7b.
