Question & Answer

Is this suited for hedging on NSW Central Coast? If so how many seedlings would you recommend for a ten metre hedge same question for musk mellow and lemon myrtle and any others you might recommend. Regards Simon From: AVOCA BEACH NSW

Lemon scented Tea tree would make an excellant hedge for Central Coast. The closer you plant them the quicker and denser the hedge. But for 10 mtrs to maximise your savings you could get away with say one every 1.5mtrs. Lemon myrtle would be good too, but they are hard to propagate. There is a Hedge Pack you can mix and max from. go to http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/fruit-tree-pack.php?Fruit-Tree-Pack=153
