New hedge

Paddy Murphy asked 11 years ago

I am thinking of planting a new Griselinia hedge. I know that we are coming into the right time of year to plant bare root. I have heard that as a cheaper option that you can get cuttings from existing hedge a plant these. Can you outline the process and tell me if the hedge is likely to grow as well from the cuttings as from the bare root plants?

Cuttings about 30cm long from an existing hedge, inserted in October in weed-free soil will root close to 100%.

You will lose a year or two on established plants.
