The buxus moth has come to Europe recent years and has arrived in central France, people are desperately using chemicals to kill off the caterpillars. Huge bushes i've seen completely devoured. I'd kept mine low as a wind break around my veggie garden. Internet said the leaves would come back, but they haven't so far, any way, they'll die in next years cycle. So i decided to make the hedge a rosemary hedge, which i use in massage oil and to make a hydrosol for hair and help with concentration. Had some two year old cuttings to start the replacement.
I am also heading away from box and towards rosemary, and maybe lavender also. I usd both in my beef dripping moisturisers but really its for the look and the smell.
To lead a tranquil life, mind your own business and work with your hands. And find a reliable builder.

Lavender is great as well, but i haven't managed to propagate it by layering or cuttings so far. Bought some seeds that grew plants, hope to get viable seeds from those. Lavender hedges grow quite wide, they don't take kindly to trimming like rosemary.
