I have a five year old box hedge in my front garden, last year I planted lavender very close to it, I am now worried having read that there are only a few plants that are suitable to grow next to box. is this the case as I do not want the lavender to take all the nutrients from the box.
Also do I need to feed the box this time of year.
Very grateful for tips and advice please.
Thank you

Welcome!

My suspicion is that the box is more likely to take nutrients from the lavender, but how close is the lavender, do you have a picture? I've grown different plants close to a box hedge and not had a problem but if the lavender is almost in the hedge then it might be different.
