How To Care

Baby Gem Boxwoods grow in full sun to part shade. They adapt well to a variety of well-draining soils. Water deeply twice weekly when newly planted to help the roots grow properly. Add 2-3 inches of mulch to help your new plant stay moist. Once established this boxwood is drought tolerant. However, boxwoods will perform best when watered once weekly during dry periods, including in winter. Fertilize when planting and in early spring with our balanced, slow release fertilizer to give your boxwood a boost. Pruning can be done anytime of the year. However, it is best to avoid pruning in late fall as pruning will stimulate new growth that will be too tender to survive the freezing, winter temperatures.

This boxwood is rabbit and pollution tolerant and deer, pest, and disease resistant.

Landscape Ideas

The Baby Gem™ Boxwood makes a lovely hedge. Trim for clean curves and sharp lines and angles. Leave unpruned for a more natural look. Define corners with a group of three. Plant as an accent bush in a mixed bed or garden. Boxwoods are gorgeous in containers. Accent your deck, patio, porch, or entryway for a classy look. Boxwoods are generally shaped into balls. Step outside of the ball and into the box...try squares and rectangles for a showy look that will catch everyone's eye! Transform your landscape with boxwoods. The options are endless! Go formal. Go casual. It's all up to you!
