Online Catalogue | Privet Hedging (Ligustrum ovalifolium)
Click here for a chart of species characteristics to help you chooseThe Privet hedge plant is probably one of the most common and most popular fast growing hedging species and it's particularly well suited to urban areas and gardens because it's so good at pollution absorption. Privet is a semi evergreen rather than a full evergreen so in cold winters or exposed situations it will lose some of its leaves and look a bit thinner, but it will retain leaves and a green appearance all year round and looks particularly good in spring and summer when the new leaves flush out . Privet has creamy white flowers but it's not known as a flowering hedging species and generally the flowers are just trimmed off when the hedge is clipped. This species is very easy to trim with shears or electric hedge trimmers and has small leaves so looks very neat when just trimmed. It will grow up to 4m but is very easily kept neat at 1.0m upwards.From November to early April (sometimes late March), we have Privet available as bare root hedging plants which makes it a very economic way to establish a new hedge. Bare root Privet hedge plants are available from November to early April (sometimes late March). For bushier, bulkier plants we recommend root ball plants (available from late October to early April).We also have pot grown plants grown on our own nurseries and very competitively priced.Harmful if eaten.Don't forget to order RootGrow and/or Bonemeal.New range of beautiful topiary now available.
