Variegated New Zealand Privet Hedge Plants - Delivered by Mail Order from the Nursery with a 1 Year Guarantee
Variegated New Zealand Privet, Griselinia littoralis variegata, is a form of Griselinia with a creamy-white margin on the leaves. It grows well on windy, sunny coastal sites and it is happy on any well drained soil. It is a good hedge plant and can also be grown as small specimen tree. Variegated New Zealand Privet is good for hedges up to about 7 metres high.
Variegated New Zealand Privet hedge plants are only delivered pot-grown, year round. All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the pots aren't measured).
Spacing a Variegated New Zealand Privet hedge: Plant Variegated New Zealand Privet hedging at 2 plants per metre, 50cms apart.
General description of Variegated New Zealand Privet plants: This large, evergreen shrub has lush, thick leaves form an effective windbreak. Each leaf has a whitish margin that can cover half the leaf. We really recommend Variegated Griselinia for planting in the full sun; it will tolerate a little shade, but this will slow its growth and may cause its variegated leaved to revert to green. It will grow on any well drained soil, including shallow chalk and very poor, sandy soils. Griselinia is suitable for exposed, windy sites, but we recommend using Portugal Laurel instead if you live in Scotland or the North East coast of England. Griselinia is resistant to honey fungus.
History & uses of Griselinia littoralis variegata This plant was first imported from New Zealand in 1850. It has won the RHS Award of Garden Merit and the Award of Merit for use in displays of cut stems.
Delivery: The basic delivery charge for orders of bareroot plants is £9.49 + vat, which increases to £12.55 + vat if you add any pot-grown plants, standard trees or fruit trees to the order. Because couriers sometimes experience delays, we schedule delivery by week, not by day. Therefore, please plan your planting day for the weekend at the end of the delivery week or for the week following delivery, at the earliest. You can choose the delivery week that suits you during checkout and we will email you the day before your plants are due to arrive.
Payment: We do not charge your card until we begin to prepare your order for packing.
Guarantee: If any plants die within a year, we will replace them. We only ask that you follow our planting & growing instructions and sent us clear photographs of the dead plants in situ, so we can help to make sure that the replacement plants succeed. You only pay for the delivery of the replacements.
Please note that our guarantee is void if there is a hosepipe ban in your area: your newly planted hedging must be watered in dry weather while it is establishing. The best way to water is very thoroughly every few days: at least once a week if there is no heavy rain.
Our nursery has been supplying container grown and bareroot hedging plants to gardeners, farmers and town planners since 1949.

If any of your plants are damaged when they arrive or if you are otherwise not satisfied with your order after you inspect it, please repackage it and contact us. We will give you a refund or send replacements and send a courier to come and collect the unwanted plants.
