Hello, I am about to tackle gardening again. I just bought some weathergreeen boxwood trees/shrubs for planting. They should grow about 3-4 feet high and wide. How deep should I plant these trees and what types of potting mix or soil would you suggest? Thanks for the help.

Welcome!

Loosen the soil twice as wide and deep as the pots the plants are currently in. Unless your soil is truly terrible, skip the garden soil/compost. Plant them at the same level as they are in the pots - that means there should be no added soil over the top of the rootball.
