Griselinia hedge, be careful as a lot have died in the past few years.

I would not recommend Griselinia as a hedge, the variegated form including Bantry Bay makes a handsome single specimen shrub but as a hedge no.
reasons being they are very susceptible to root rots including Phythophthora and Armilaria and early Spring frosts.

Thanks guys for the info......I didn't think it was a Griselinia varity, but now that I had another look at I can see that it is.

Thanks
