How to plant sarcococcas

Sarcococcas or Christmas boxes are non demanding, bushy everygreen shrubs bearing glossy leaves and tiny, sweetly scented, creamy flowers that will hang from the stems before being replaced by small black berries. Commonly used as ground-cover or edging plants, they are especially suited to the woodland garden or shady border. Try mixing with hardy cyclamens, hellebores or shrubs.

Plant in moist, well-drained, fertile and humus rich soil, preferably in shade or partial shade. If planted in full sun, please note that they will need constant moisture. Shelter from cold, drying winds.

Sarcoccocas are supplied in 9 cm pots. Always unpack on arrival and store in a cool place until ready to plant.

Potential problems, pests and diseases:

Generally, sarcococcas do not suffer from any serious diseases or pest problems.
