Evergreen tree or bush. Commonly used in gardening.
It must be placed outdoors, in full sun, all year round.
Abundantly in summer and in moderation in winter.
Spring and autumn.
In spring, every two or three years.
TERRABONSAI from Mistral Bonsai.
After repotting, it is convenient to water with a solution of VITABONSAI from Mistral Bonsai, to accelerate the tree’s recovery.
Pruning and pinching
During growing season.
Pinching must be performed when the bud has six to eight pairs of leaves, leaving only two pairs of leaves.
All year round, better in spring.
This tree can leave for hundreds of years, up to 500 years. Its wood is very hard and compact, of yellow colour and very appreciated to produce flutes, pipes, spoons and hafts for tools. Nowadays it is vastly exploited, therefore it is difficult to find old trees. One of the few places we can still find Buxus in wild nature is in some protected areas like the National Park of Ordesa (Huesca) where there are 6 metres tall trees.
