How To Make A Boxwood Tree in Oasis

One of the things our custom department does at the holidays is to make boxwood and mixed greens trees in oasis. We sell plain trees for those who want to decorate one themselves, and we offer pre-decorated trees in assorted styles. These trees are fun to make and every year we offer workshops and teach people how to make a tree themselves. For those who can’t come into a workshop, I’m printing the instructions here so that you can make your own.

This is a boxwood tree decorated with small starfish and fresh baby's breath flowers. To keep these trees looking good for months, water from the top every two days. In order to get them well watered, carry the tree to the sink so that a lot of water can be poured over the oasis block.

You can also make a lovely tree using boxwood and other, mixed evergreens from your yard.

Mixed greens trees are done in much the same way as a boxwood tree. Do one type of green at a time. It helps to do the boxwood last to fill in.
