sarcococca humilis 1

 

Sarcococca

One of the most sweetly scented plants at this time of year. A bush that is healthy all year flowers during the dreariest season and is so cheerful and fragrant, it deserves a place in your garden. The smallest of the sweet boxes is the variety called Sarcococca Humilis. This might be the one to choose if you want a replacement for box hedging, now that box hedging has become susceptible to the fungal disease that turns it brown.

All four varieties of Sarcococca have been given the RHS award of Garden Merit, which means they are amongst the most beautiful and useful plants in cultivation.

 

Growing Sarcococca is extremely easy. These plants thrive in shade; even in the sorts of places other plants would shrivel and languish through lack of light. Good drainage is helpful but not essential. What I noticed was that they like a good amount of feeding for the first year until they get established. Then, they need normal routine feeds like any other plant. Slow release feed is what I would recommend you use.
