Lonicera nitida May Green Hedge

Lonicera nitida 'May Green' is a close knit, bushy evergreen hedging plant that is very tolerant to hard pruning and clipping. It is possible to grow this hedge to 2metres/6foot but it can talk a while to gain height. Because of its Buxus (Box) like leaf it is a favored topiary plant. 

Lonicera Hedging is very tolerant shade and most soil types but not as much to waterlogging.

Plant Spacing:
Bare Root. When planting 20cm - 30cm plants you will need 7 plants per metre to create a good hedge. We would plant no less than 5 per metre. 
30cm - 45cm plants will best suit 6 plants per metre but no less than 3 per metre.


Pot Grown / Root Balled. When planting 20cm - 40cm plants you will need 5 plants per metre to create a good hedge. We would plant no less than 3 per metre. 
40cm - 60cm 5lt plants will best suit 4 plants per metre but no less than 3 per metre.
