Planting Choisya Ternata Successfully
Mexican Orange Blossom requires a shielded spot with both partial and full sun. Choisya takes to most types of fertile soil and is quite fast-growing. You can expect this type of hedging to grow up to 1.5 – 2.5m (5ft – 8ft) in length and width. For best results, prune in the spring to create a flowering burst in the summer and early autumn.
These Mexican Orange Blossom hedge plants are well suited to low maintenance, city and courtyard type gardens, as well as drought-resistant borders and other wall side locations, amongst others. For optimum results, it is recommended that you grow them in well-drained soil, although they can thrive in containers and open ground, as well as for low hedging solutions. All of the plants that come from our family-run nursery in Kent have been carefully looked after, to ensure that they will flourish when you come to planting them in your home or landscaping project.
