The Griselinia littoralis hedge plant is one of our top 10 selling species and a popular evergreen option. The glossy, apple green foliage makes a lush and dense hedge that offers year-round interest and screening. Also known as New Zealand Privet or New Zealand Broadleaf, this is a wonderfully diverse hedging plant suited to coastal situations, as well as inland positions.

  • Best Features: Evergreen foliage, year-round interest
  • Ideal For Hedges: 1.5m-6m high
  • Growth Rate: Average | 20-40cm a year
  • Position: Any normal soil including well-drained dry, sun or light shade, inland and coastal (but not exposed coastal)
  • Also Consider: For an alternative leaf colour, try Escallonia hedging and Oleaster (Elaeagnus) hedging, as similar to Griselinia littoralis, both of these species are well suited to coastal positions.

*Please note, 1 bare root = 1 Griselinia littoralis plant, not a bundle of plants.

Griselinia littoralis hedging (New Zealand Privet) description

Griselinia littoralis hedge plants have lovely, soft, green foliage which is oval-shaped and glossy. Due to its evergreen nature, Griselinia hedging offers year-round privacy screening, whilst providing shelter from noise pollution and winds. This is an ideal choice for seaside locations, as the hardy foliage can tolerate harsh weather conditions. 

Best uses for Griselinia hedge plants

Griselinia littoralis is perfect for formal hedging as it can be clipped into a fairly compact, neat shape. It also works well when left to develop a more natural form, great for a relaxed aesthetic, as Griselinia hedging is attractive when left a little bushy. Griselinia hedge plants are suited to coastal sites, adding to the popularity of this species. New Zealand Privet can handle most UK climates, apart from those that experience extremely cold temperatures; Oleaster would be a better choice in these conditions.

Combine Griselinia littoralis with

New Zealand Privet can be combined with the variegated variety of Griselinia littoralis; Dixon's Cream for a brighter look, or grown alone as a classic, feature hedge, that would make an attractive addition to any garden.

Growth rate of Griselinia littoralis (New Zealand Privet)

With an average growth rate, your Griselinia littoralis hedge will achieve about 30cm of growth a year. The height of Griselinia hedging varies between 1.5m - 6m, and can be controlled with trimming to meet your desired height.

Care and pruning advice for Griselinia hedging

Pruning Griselinia littoralis is fairly simple; we recommend trimming one a year in late autumn. Griselinia hedging can also be hard-pruned should you require a more specific height or shape. Please view our Hedging Care Advice page for further pruning information.

Ideal planting density for Griselinia hedge plants

For more specific information on the planting density of Griselinia hedging, please see the product table above. In the 'No. Per Metre' column, you will find our recommended plant density for each individual plant species and root type. You can also find more information about Hedge Planting Density here.

Griselinia hedge plants are available to purchase in containers or as an instant hedge, for year-round planting.

The vast majority of our Griselinia hedge plants are grown in the UK by professionals with generations of nursery expertise; however, on the odd occasion, we may need to source New Zealand Privet from a specialist nursery abroad. When this occurs, we ensure that the nursery maintains high-quality standards that match our UK sites.  At best4hedging we continually endeavour to bring you the freshest, highest quality plants at low, competitive prices, so you can buy Griselinia littoralis online with confidence. This evergreen hedging can on occasion also display small purple fruits in the winter once established, delivering a rare and tasty treat for birds and giving Griselinia littoralis added wildlife interest.

  • Orders £85 & over (ex. VAT) to mainland UK are delivered FREE* (Exceptions apply - see below for Scottish Highlands etc)
  • Orders under £85 (ex. VAT) to mainland UK £9.95
  • At an additional cost, we can deliver to Scottish Highlands & Islands, which we classify as including AB (Aberdeen) and DD (Dundee) postcodes, as well as Ireland, Channel Islands, Isle of Wight and Isle Man. The exact delivery cost is order specific and will need to be quoted by one of our team, so please contact us on 01257 261 243

*For some plants that are too heavy or too tall to be packed in cardboard boxes we use pallet deliveries. In these circumstances, we require a minimum order value of £200 (ex VAT) for free delivery, or you can make a contribution towards the delivery cost. Look out for the information on product pages which explains this further where applicable and if your order is for less than £200 (ex VAT) please call or email us to agree upon a delivery contribution. This requirement only applies to those plants where it is clearly indicated on the product page

Pallet deliveries are always undertaken on an 18-tonne vehicle (similar in size to a standard refuse vehicle). If for any reason you require a smaller vehicle please contact our sales team who can arrange this for you. There will be an additional surcharge applied for small vehicle deliveries

Delivery Timescales

99% of our orders are dispatched within 3 to 5 working days of receipt and most the day after the order is placed. We can do “next day delivery” on many of our products for an additional £12 (incl VAT) but please call on 01257 494 491 before placing your order to check.

We can also deliver on a specified date to suit you. Please indicate the date you would like to receive delivery in the notes section of the checkout (or place your order by phone) and we’ll do our utmost to meet that date.

Occasional hiccups can occur (such as broken down vehicles) and although we are very experienced in logistics we cannot be held liable for costs incurred or inconvenience due to late deliveries - see terms and conditions for more information.

You will receive an email or telephone call confirming the dispatch of your order 24/48 hours before it arrives with you.

Exceptions to our quick turnaround timescale

Pre-orders - if you have placed an order that includes products on pre-order, then they will be dispatched to you as soon as they are available. If your order includes pre-order bare roots or root balls you will be notified once they are being dispatched (root balls from mid to late October and bare roots from early to mid-November).

Root balls - lifting root balls involves the use of complex, heavy machinery, this lifting is carried out twice a week in the root ball season so we do still have a prompt turnaround timescale but if your order has just missed one lifting, it will be a few days before we lift again. We are always happy to confirm when we can deliver to you before you order. The benefit of this method of supplying root balls is that they are always fresh and therefore have a higher success rate than root balls that are stored out of the soil.

Weather conditions can affect dispatch - bare root and root ball plants are not lifted if the ground is too cold (it damages the roots) and the delivery of all plants can be affected if the water supply is frozen (because we water all plants before packing). Extremely hot weather can also be challenging and occasionally we hold backorders for species that are particularly vulnerable. We ask our customers to be mindful of bank holidays when couriers are not active.

We'd like to stress that although there are exceptions, the vast majority of our orders are dispatched extremely quickly and we are proud of our logistics developed over many years of delivering plants to tens of thousands of customers.

Returns

We inspect plants carefully before dispatch but accept that very occasionally things may go wrong. 
You can return your plants (within 14 days) for a refund or replacement (we’ll help with the process of returning). If your plants arrived damaged then returns are free of charge. However, we ask that you inform us as soon as possible. If you’d like to return your plants because of a change of plan or if we do not agree that the plants are significantly damaged (the loss of a few leaves in transit or a loose pot on arrival, for example, wouldn't be harmful to the plants), then we may ask you to pay the full or partial return costs if you still wanted to return them. We’re very reasonable and always aim for complete satisfaction as demonstrated by our amazing Feefo customer reviews which can be viewed here.

Should you wish to return any products that you have over-bought, no longer require or purchased in error you will incur both a return cost (different charges for pallets and Boxes) and the original cost of delivery incurred by Best4hedging. Please contact the Service team for charges and/or to organise a return. Plants will be subject to a quality control check from our Nursery upon return before any refund is authorised and processed.

Please note that in the case of damaged plants, if you have not notified us of a problem within 14 days of delivery, we consider you to have accepted the plants and Best4Hedging has no further liability for them should they fail.

You can read more about our returns policy in our terms and conditions here.
