This is the time of year when many of us start planning changes to our gardens so we thought it worthwhile to introduce you to a tree that we are growing in the nursery called Ficus tuffi.
Ficus tuffi is a very popular tree as creates an excellent hedge and is also ideal for topiary.
Ficus tuffi is a similar colour green to Griselinia littoralis but the leaves are smaller, softer and easier to trim, leaving a clean formal look. They create a fast growing and hardy hedge or for topiary use, they can be shaped into cones, pillars or lollipops. They are frost tender so should not be used in areas that get hard frosts. They can be used in coastal situations, semi-shade and full sun.
We have good stocks Ficus tuffi available now in a 45 ltr and our 80 ltr grade (photo below) will be available at the end of October (2014). Visit our directory listing to contact us
