I planted a viburnum odoratissimum hedge 3 years ago and still no rapid growth

in fact despite so much love and water and fertiliser…. prepared before planting by digging a trench and filling with compost and loam… nothing more I could’ve done…

maybe should’ve stuck with photinia robusta!

It is quite easy to “over-love” a plant to death. Always make sure to check soil fertility levels before planting or adding anything to ensure that it is not already full of nutrients. Once you have a soil test, you can begin to correct soil if necessary.

Viburnums are usually pretty self sufficient, not require much extra nutrients.

They can also be considered somewhat slow growing, comparatively.
