Plant of the Week: Sarcococca

Plant of the Week: Sarcococca

This modest, unassuming plant has a secret weapon. Sarcococca, also known as Christmas box, is for most of the year a handsome evergreen with small, glossy leaves, low maintenance and the perfect backdrop to set off more colourful summer flowers. Then in December its tiny, almost invisible flowers open wide and release scent so glorious it'll fill the whole garden.

There are two types: the neat Sarcococca confusa, forming a dome around 1.2m tall, and S. hookeriana var. digyna with narrow, gracefully pointed leaves. Look out, too, for S. humilis, which makes a low hummock, easily trimmed into a low hedge as a substitute for disease-prone box.

Mulch Trees

Mulch established trees now with a good layer of well rotted manure, leaf mould or garden compost, but make sure that the mulch does not touch the trunk this is to prevent pests and diseases harming the bark. Best done after rain so moisture is trapped.
