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.
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!
