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.

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!

Beautiful Boxwoods

I ordered 19 plants to add to some I already planted several months ago. Couldn't find enough Baby Gems locally again so took a chance and ordered from Planting Tree. The plants arrived within days of my purchase in perfect shape. They were shipped in long cardboard boxes and each pot was wrapped with a plastic bag and secured around the base of the plant with a zip tie which kept the soil in place during transit. The plants are full, bright green and have a good root system without being root bound. Thanks Planting Tree for helping me complete my front yard landscape.

Beautiful plants!!

I ordered 4 Baby Gems to border my Blushing Bride hydrangeas purchased in the same order. They were all shipped quickly & with superb care. All arrived beautifully healthy, packaged, and with soil still damp. Planted them right away. It's been less than a week since I've planted them, but they look happy. And that makes me very happy! Thank you- I'll be back soon!

Happy Baby Gems :)!

I ordered 8 of these to line a garden path. They arrived in a couple days in excellent condition and are happily growing in their new home. The packaging was excellent. Thank you!!!

So far so good

Ordered several shrubs/types. The plants arrived in great shape. They are in the ground just over a week and still look great.
