Q.Ok To Plant Japanese Boxwood In 2′ X 2′ X 4′ Livestock Trough?

Zone 95453 | Anonymous added on May 3, 2022 | Answered

The boxwood is in a 15 gal nursery can and is about 4′ X 4′ right now. I do want it to grow to 6′ and am worried that the livestock trough may not be big enough. Maybe a 2 X 2 X 6′ would be better? Or maybe these aren’t deep enough?

I would say the 4 foot is deep enough. But you should drill lots of holes in the bottom for drainage.
