Garden Tuesday: Boxwood

Last fall, I decided that the back side of our garage and porch looked just butt-ugly.  So Dan went off to one of the big box home improvement stores, and bought all of the boxwoods they had.  They were in one gallon containers, and cost $3 each on clearance.

 They're doing pretty well now.  They've grown quite a bit.

Of course, one got to be a favorite of Brutus'.  He gnawed on it, sat on it, pawed at it, and now it's just grass.  Fortunately, he left the rest alone.  They're even doing well in the relative shade of our garage.

Now, to figure out how to make the rest of the plantings around the house to look good.

Happy Garden Tuesday, everyone!

I've got a ten foot slab to cover up on the new house-- that's going to be a lot of plants! :)

I love boxwood, but the Knight can't stand it. Boo.

I think that's so nice you gave Brutus his own boxwood.

I like hedges and think that wall will look much nicer once those babies start growing.

Brutus, you chew sticks after they fall off the plant.

Phew... glad Brutus only liked one of them!
