For Indoor or Outdoor Miniature Gardens or Fairy Gardens!

This baby English Boxwood tree is really a treat for miniature gardening - it can be grown outdoors in temperate climates in bright shade or cool sun, or indoors in as much bright, indirect light as you can.

Boxwoods are excellent container plants. They don't mind their roots cramped, they can be pruned anytime and are evergreen.

The bright yellow and green leaves are very cheerful. Learn how versatile they are below. 

It can be grown indoors with plenty of light - BUT Add light anywhere! You can find grow-bulbs that fit any of your regular indoor lamps at your local hardware store or online. They really look like an outdoor tree in miniature.

NOTE: In spring when the weather warms up OR if this plant is coming from our cold nursery to your warm house, it will emit a strong odor. This is normal. It is the oils coming out of the leaves that is causing the smell. The oils will dry out in a couple of days and the smell will go away. This is common with boxwoods.

Other plants, patio and accessories shown in photos are not included.
