frost damage

Martin McDonald asked 11 years ago

When is it safe to say that cordylines and griselinia hedges are really dead after suffering severe frost damage?Can new hedge plants(probably hawthorn or lonicera nitida) be planted between the existing sawn off stumps of dead hedge plants without uprooting the dead ones?Any advice welcome…

If there is no sign of recovery on griselinia by now, it is unlikely to recover. Cordylines can recover much later, even next year.

Yes, you can plant a new hedge between stumps of the old.
