    • Position: full sun or partial shade
    • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
    • Rate of growth: fast-growing
    • Flowering period: May and June
    • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

      Prized for its striking, dark grey or black young stems clothed with distinctive, wavy, small grey-green leaves edged with cream, this large, bushy, evergreen shrub or small tree forms a natural oval. It makes a lovely backdrop to a sunny, well-drained border and responds well to light clipping into a more formal shape. An excellent plant for warm coastal areas, where it can successfully be grown as an attractive, variegated windbreak or hedge.

    • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. To thin or reduce growth prune mid-spring and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.

        A:

        Hello there
        No I wouldn't plant it in a north facing aspect as these plants are only frost hardy. We recommend a South or West facing aspect.

    • Q:

      Is my Pittsporum OK?

      I have recently repotted and changed the location of two Pittsporums. They have not taken kindly to the move. The leaves are dropping and are now very small. Some are going brown. Will they pick up once they get used to the new location or is it that they just don't like being moved. Cheers Martin

      • A:

        Hello Martin, Pittosporum don't particularly dislike being moved as long as their rootball is not damaged. Ideally though, this should be done while they are dormant. It sounds as though they may either have suffered from root disturbance, or they have been allowed to dry out at some stage. I'm afraid it is impossible to know if they will pick up as it really depends on how much damage has been done. Keep them well watered (but not waterelogged) and hopefully they will recover. I will keep my fingers crossed for you! I'm sorry not to be more help. Helen Plant Doctor
