Answer: There are a huge number of plants which can be used as hedges, some are easy to form into hedges others need a lot of attention to form them.
Murraya’s are a fantastic hedging plant that is fast growing and requires little maintenance, only an occasion feed and prune to keep the shape. Murraya’s also produces a wonderfully scented flower in spring and summer.
You can also try the native Lilly Pilly. These are great hedging plants, the new growth comes in a cherry red colour before fading to green as the leaves age. If your grow Lilly Pilly’s you need to think about Psyllids. These pests take advantage of weak and stressed plants. Help your plants to stay healthy by keeping the soil moist and feeding them regularly with Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser. Psyllid resistant varieties of lilly pillies are also available.
