Care & Size Guidance
Plant the Sweet box alongside borders and pathways, either as a ground cover or as a low hedge.
The Sarcococca can be easily grown in a container, making it the perfect winter plant.
Prefers a part shade position, where the soil is damp at all times. It can stay also in a full sun position, provided watering is done more frequently.
Trim in summer, after flowering is finished to keep the plant in check.
