If griselinia is growing in good soil it does not need any fertiliser.

Fish blood and bone meal is an organic source of nitrogen, phosphorus and some potash. It is a reasonably good fertiliser, but expensive for use on a hedge.

Much more important is to make sure there are no weeds or grass within 40 to 50 cm on each side of the growing hedge.
