Description

Elaeagnus

Elaeagnus is a popular evergreen shrub that establishes into a large dense shrub. The Elaeagnus is known to be a seaside hedge, doing very well in windy, salty conditions unlike many other hedges, similar to Griselinia.

The Elaeagnus produces small fragrant flowers in Autumn which are white, later forming vibrant orange berries in the springtime adding a splash of colour to the plants through the year.

The Elaeagnus has historically been seen in warmer locations much closer to the equator, but over recent years has started to push through the UK, and grow in more widespread due to the result of climate change, but be careful the Elaeagnus can get shocked with extremely cold UK weather.

The Elaeagnus can tolerate all soil types including chalky, clay or sandy soil or even a good loam, just be sure to give the plants plenty of water as they are establishing. After a few years the plants can grow up to around 4 meters tall and can spread just as wide. If you would rather keep the plants controlled, it is recommended that they are trimmed in late spring once the fruit has finished developing.

The recommended planting density varies depending on the height of the plants you buy for example:

Small – 15-90cm: It is recommended that you plant 3-5 plants per meter

Medium – 90-150cm: It is recommended that you plant 2-3 plants per meter

Large – 150-300cm: It is recommended that you plant 1-2 plants per meter
