Elaeagnus Angustifolia Hedging

Elaeagnus angustifolia, Oleaster, is a big thorny shrub that thrives in poor soil by the sea and is able to grow on almost pure sand.
Elaeagnus angustifolia is good for hedges up to about 4 metres high.
You can also buy the evergreen Elaeagnus ebbingei, which is less hardy and has no thorns.

Elaeagnus angustifolia hedge plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Spacing an Elaeagnus angustifolia hedge:

Plant Elaeagnus angustifolia hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.

General description of Elaeagnus angustifolia plants:

This is a hardy hedging plant for poor soils and windy sites on the coast. It is thorny and has silvery, fragrant foliage. The small, abundant yellow flowers aren't very showy, but they have a good scent that carries well. These mature into small silver-orange berries, which are edible, although they don't have much flavour and tend to be quickly picked off by birds. As a shrub, Oleaster is also good for small gardens. Oleaster's roots fix nitrogen, so it will thrive on the worst soils.

History & uses of Oleaster:

Common Names: Oleaster, Silver berry bush, Russian olive, Wild olive
Elaeagnus angustifolia's native range is from Russia to Iran, where its berries are dried, powdered and added to milk for drinking. It has been grown in Britain since the 1500s.
