Why We Love It

As the name suggests 'Golf Ball' grows in a naturally spherical shape.

These dense evergreen globes make an eye-catching low hedge and can reach approximately 1 m in diameter.

How to Plant

'Golf Ball' is easy to grow in moist but well-drained soil. It will do fine in partial shade, though a spot in full sun will help the leaves to develop their full colour. A sheltered position will help protect it from frost and cold winter winds, and allow it to thrive.

Into the Ground

Ready to plant your Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Golf Ball'? Grab your spade, fork, watering tool, some well-rotted compost and soil improver.

  1. If your soil is heavy, improve drainage by mixing in plenty of compost.
  2. Dig a hole twice as big as the plant's rootball. Sprinkle in some soil improver.
  3. Pop your plant into the hole, at the same depth it was at in the pot.
  4. Backfill and firm down.
  5. Water well.

Into a Pot

You'll need a container a bit bigger than the one the plant came in and some potting compost. Grab your spade and a watering tool too.

  1. Raise your container on bricks to help water drain away.
  2. Fill your container with compost.
  3. Dig a hole twice the size of the rootball.
  4. Insert your plant into the hole, with the rootball at the same depth it was at in its pot.
  5. Backfill around the roots and firm down.
  6. Water well.
