09/2020: Planted 8 along retaining wall in front garden. 1 remaining planted in a pot.
Supposedly fast growing for boxwoods, I planted these ‘Sprinters’ to replace the English Laurels that I finally got sick of and removed from our front garden. (That took some fortitude and muscle, but I’m glad I did it – they needed pruning twice a year and usually looked like heck.). The boxwoods came shipped direct from the nursery via Home Depot and looked healthy though a wee bit on the small side, so I’m hoping they live up to their name.
UPDATE 2021: They don’t seem to have sprinted much but they were so small to begin with it’s hard to tell! They seem healthy anyway, looking forward to more growth next year.
