Griselinia

Griselinia or New Zealand Bradleaf

Also known as New Zealand Broadleaf or New Zealand Privet, griselinia plants are renowned for their leathery leaves either in apple green or beautiful green and cream variegation, as well as the small clusters of greenish-yellow flowers and the small purple fruits that grow on the female plants during spring. Yet, the main attraction of this lovely garden planter is the privacy offered by the griselinia hedge’s dense foliage, which remains intact all year round. 

Where to Site Your Griselinia

Similar to our range of Elaeagnus shrubs, griselinia plants are incredibly resistant to strong winds, meaning they are the ideal hedge plant to offer protection and shelter to gardens that are naturally more exposed to the elements. They also react well to seaside exposure and are highly resistant to damage by salt winds, making them perfect for coastal landscapes. Or the perfect stand a lone shrub that will add beautiful height to a flower border.

How to Grow and Look After you Griselina

Our griselinia is a low maintenance evergreen plant that can thrive in many different areas of the garden. While best suited to coastal areas, griselinia plants will also flourish inland and can withstand temperatures as low as -15 ⁰C. They cope well with being planted in both shaded spots and partial sunlight but tend to grow best in full view of the sun.

Feeding your griselinia plant, and ensuring it’s receiving all the nutrients it needs to develop at a good rate, is important. If the colour of your hedge begins to fade, this is a sign your plant is hungry and requires additional nourishment. In order to keep your hedge healthy, we recommend occasionally applying an all-purpose granular feed such as chicken pellets to the underlying soil. This will aid healthy development and is of particular benefit to weak, new and recently trimmed hedges. When it comes to the soil itself, griselinia is not too particular and will tolerate a wide range of alkaline and acid-rich soils. However, planting in waterlogged areas should be avoided if possible. 

Don’t worry if your hedge needs a serious cutback, griselinia has a sturdy structure that can withstand heavy pruning. After this, simply trim any untidy branches and shoots if and when required
