Griselinia Hedge Plants Description
Griselinia does well when trimmed to shape and quickly establishes a mature hedge.
Its growth rate is average at approx. 20-40cm p.a. and it is easy to trim so it's a great low maintenance evergreen hedging plant (though all hedges need maintenance!). Griselinia prefers well-drained soil and is one of the most suitable species for seaside gardens.
For a colourful, variegated variety, see our range of Griselinia Dixon's Cream hedging, or take a look at our large range of hedging with colourful foliage.
Our other most popular coastal options are Oleaster and Escallonia. View all of our hedging for exposed sites.
Griselinia hedge plants are available all year round. See also our range of evergreen hedging plants.
Youll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed next to the products below. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long youre willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.
For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section

Griselinia littoralis is a great low maintenance evergreen hedge plant but differs in pruning times dependent on the age of the hedge.
For newly planted hedges planted in the winter months, some preliminary pruning can take place in spring after planting and then again in spring for the following couple of years. Once more mature, Griselinia hedging can be pruned on an annual maintenance basis in the summer to keep it to the desired shape.
Pruning is relatively easy and mostly consists of removing any dead, damaged or diseased shoots and general trimming to shape. As Griselinia is a less 'formal' hedge, it doesn't require extensive pruning. Garden shears will generally be adequate for the task unless the hedge is of a size that makes trimming by hand impractical, at which point a hedge trimmer would be the sensible option when trimming to shape.
It may also be beneficial to the plant to mulch or feed after pruning. This can help the plant to recover and thrive. A general purpose fertiliser will be adequate.
Don't forget however, that you must check the hedge for any potential nest sites prior to commencing any trimming, especially with electric trimmers.
