columnar boxwood - too good to pass up
At one of my favorite nurseries, the guy has maybe 16 columnar boxwoods started - each probably a foot tall. They look healthy, have strong upright growth already but not very full yet of course. He wants $4.95 a piece. I'm salivating and am trying to justify buying at least ten and healing them in somewhere on my property. I know it will be at years before they fill out and get some decent height, but a 10yr. colmnr boxwd is very expensive. I love them dotted about my formal garden, and with that many I could create something special....some day.
So, question. Where and how should I put these in the ground and nurture them? I was thinking of finding a sunny spot with some windbreak, plant them in a mound? What kind of soil bed should I prepare?
