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.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
