Buxus National Collection

Current Status

  • Cuttings being propagated at Shallowmead Nurseries
  • Langley regains ‘National Collection’ for Buxus
  • Previous collections suffered from blight or neglect
  • Long-term plan being devised for existing plants
  • Topbuxus providing their products free for a second year
  • Work is ongoing to improve the health of the plants
  • Significant reduction of weeds on the Langley site

Following a suggestion by Barry Clarke, Botanist and Plant Records Officer at Sir Harold Hillier Gardens, EBTS UK member Andrew Napier, with the help of his wife Lena, Bruce Ginsberg & Chris Poole, are working with the current site owner, Ashley Brunning, to restore/maintain the collection.

This will be a long project and you can follow the progress below.
