Perennials to go with Buxus borders...


Perennials to go with Buxus borders...

by 4 years ago

Any suggestions for perrianials who will survive being planted in Buxus borders? (Size aprox 2x2 meters or 7x7 feet) Dutch soil (clay-ish) avarage sun, (depending the location in the garden from 3 up to 9 hours sun in summertime). Buxus borders are about 0,5 meters high, 1,5 feet).

Thanks for any tips in advance!

Soil probably fairly fertile so should not be too problematic. Buxus is always very competitive, but many gardeners succeed with wide range plants within 50cms of the plants. Important not to be taller than the Buxus, and be prepared to feed. Hope this helps. Noel

50 cm, and not taller than the Buxus... that will help and does explain a few things. Thank you!
