Planting Japanese Boxwoods : Fertilizing Japanese Boxwoods

Now, I’m going to talk about fertilizing Japanese
Boxwood. You may be asking yourself, “Do I need to fertilize Japanese Boxwood? How often
do I need to fertilize Japanese Boxwood?” I would say that Japanese Boxwood is a very
hearty plant. I think it’s better to air on the safe side and fertilize you’re Japanese
Boxwood too little than risk burning the roots with too much fertilizer, but it probably
will help if we add organic matter to the soil because if we’re watering very regularly
and we if we have heavy rains, eventually over time, the organic matter may be washed
away or it may be penetrating deep beneath the soil surface. So, we’re going to replenish
and add more organic matter to the top of the soil. Simply take a small amount of garden
soil or rich organic compost and sprinkle it lightly over the mulch. Don’t concentrate
just at the base of the plant, although you want to get the base, too. Scatter the soil
or the compost all around the plant. Next, use your water to water the compost or the
soil and as you’re watering, it will make this compost penetrate below the mulch and
reach the soil surface and that’s what we’re going for. Fertilizing your Japanese Boxwood
is really just that easy.
