Hi, Valerie,
Buxus is a pretty easy-going plant that doesn't require a lot of maintenance unless you are continually pruning it to maintain a desired shape (i.e. as a decorative hedge or topiary). If you are pruning regularly, feed in the growing season every 2-3 weeks with a general purpose fertiliser. Don't feed in winter since new growth will most likely get killed by cold weather. If you aren't trying to maintain a desired shape which means you aren't pruning it regularly, I would feed maybe twice in the growing season with a general purpose fertiliser.
