Protect your Buxus

Protect your Buxus

It’s that time of year again when the Boxwood Caterpillars start to become active. From now until October you will need to ensure you are protecting your box plants. Here are a couple of products that can help:



TopBuxus is specially formulated and created by Buxus growers specifically for Buxus resulting in optimum health. 

The Topbuxus range is top notch when planting and growing Buxus. We stock various different options including:

Topbuxus Grow. This fast-acting fertiliser is specifically formulated for use on Buxus plants. Apply 3 times a year in mid-April, mid-June and mid-August for deep green foliage. Simple and easy to apply in granular form around the base of the plant.

Topbuxus Moth Trap + Pheromones is for use in the garden to monitor the presence of male Box Tree Moths. They are attracted to the pheromone in the trap from which they cannot escape resulting in breaking the life cycle. Each syringe in the pack lasts for 100 days. Refillable syringes also available.

And of course, Topbuxus Health Mix. A foliar feed that is simple to use and very effective. 100% natural formula. A healthy plant is less prone to disease.



XenTari is a biological insecticide containing a natural, potent strain of the microorganism Bacillus thuringiensis subspecies aizawai (Bta) that controls caterpillar pest. When a Boxwood Caterpillar eats the treated leaves, it ingests the proteins from XenTari and dies within 1-3 days.

With its highly specific activity and natural origin, XenTari does not harm important beneficial insects such as bees for pollination, insect predators, and parasites used in control of other insect pests. XenTari is also not harmful to humans, wildlife or the environment.
