Commonly Asked Questions

How far apart do I plant Silver Sheen Pittosporums for a screening hedge?

Around 1 meter apart is ideal for a thick screening privacy hedge.

 

How fast do Pittosporums grow?

Pittosporums are a fairly fast-growing screening plant; you can expect 75cm of growth per year in good conditions. Keep plants well watered during summer with a layer of mulch to retain the moisture in the soil.

 

Should I prune my Pittosporums?

If you create a screen with pittosporums, several smaller prunes a year are ideal, rather than one large hard prune. This will encourage dense growth; after pruning, water and fertilize the plants. A layer of mulch will also retain moisture in the soil.
