Common Questions:

How long will it take to get this plant to approx 1 metre  in height  and neatly pruned?  Although opinions vary, Murraya Paniculata is quite a moderate grower. Depending on conditions approx 2-3 years if planted in this size (20cm)

What is the recommended spacing for Murraya (Orange Jasmine)? In prinicipal the recommended spacing for Murraya is one every 50cm apart (approx 3 per metre) What we suggest is you measure your garden bed and multiply the measure x 2 and that will give you 3 per metre (allowing for one at the start and one at the finish)

How often will I need to prune this type of plant? Murraya only requires pruning once or twice a year.  This can be done  in Autumn or Spring.  Remember to always feed your plants at the same time as pruning, to encourage new growth.  Never prune in the middle of the day when it is very hot as the plants will suffer from stress and may begin to wilt.  Always prune early morning or late afternoon.

Will I wait until the plant reaches my desired height before pruning? No, you should prune at least twice a year to ensure new foliage is growing from the base of the plant right up to the top.  If you leave your plants without pruning regularly, the plant will become woody and it will be difficult to cut back when they are at a mature age without damaging the structure of the plant.  You want nice new growth appearing right throughout every branch so you can box up without having holes in your hedge.

How can I increase the growth of the plant?   The answer is ensure you fertilise regularly (at least twice a year with a slow release fertiliser 6 month release) and ensure adequate water is delivered.  You should also ensure plenty of mulch is applied (At least 3-4 inches thick).  You can use any type of mulch such as pine bark, leaf mulch, euc mulch, tea tree, sugar cane or forest blend.  This will make a huge difference to the growth of your plants.
