This popular cultivar of Griselinia littoralis (a New Zealand native) grows quickly, forming a dense formal hedge that is great at providing privacy.
Grows 4 x 2m
Full sun, prefers fairly free-draining soil rich in organic matter.
Leave 0.75-1m between each hedge.
Before planting make sure that the soil is well prepared by digging in Compost to improve soil structure. This can be done by, digging individual holes for each plant or digging the compost into a trench.
In heavier clay soils adding a handful of Gypsum ever 1m2 or so, will further improve the structure. In really heavy soils you can plant into a slight mound to help with drainage.
When planting look at how the plant is already growing. Plant the bushier sides facing across from the next plant, as this will ensure your hedge fills in quicker. Fertilise using Kings 24+ or for an organic option try Aquaticus Supernatural.
Water the plant deeply and mulch with Living Earth More than Mulch to reduce competition for nutrients form weeds.
