Privet hedge plants also referred to by its Latin name Ligustrum ovalifolium, have lustrous, dark-green foliage. A semi-evergreen hedging species, Ligustrum ovalifolium is one of best4hedging’s top 10. Ligustrum ovalifolium has stunning oval leaves that clip beautifully, to create a dense and neat form that thrives in most soil conditions and position. Privet hedge plants are a popular choice for hedging and carry many benefits, including being a fast-growing shrub. It’s also ideal for garden screening, windproofing and noise reduction, as well as being tolerant of pollution, making it the perfect hedging choice for built-up, urban areas. While this shrub boasts stunning creamy white flowers that appear during the summer months, they are generally trimmed off. 

  • Best Features: Dark glossy foliage, pollution tolerant, year-round interest
  • Ideal For Hedges: 1m-4m high
  • Growth Rate: Average to Fast | 30-60cm a year
  • Position: Most normal soils, sunny, semi-shade, sheltered or exposed, inland and coastal
  • Also Consider: As well as Common Privet, we also stock other varieties of Privet hedging, including Golden Privet, which offers variegated, evergreen foliage and Wild Privet, with a slightly more natural, bushier habit providing a less formal aesthetic.

*Please note, 1 bare root = 1 Privet plant, not a bundle of plants. We use a mixture of bare root photos taken in leaf from our growing sites in summer, as well as during the bare root planting season when Privet may be defoliated.

Ligustrum ovalifolium Plant Description

If you’re looking for a relatively low-maintenance garden hedge, Ligustrum ovalifolium is worth considering. Not only is it an average-to-fast-growing hedge plant that is easy to clip, it boasts attractive foliage that makes a fantastic aesthetic addition to a cottage or informal garden but works just as well when used for a formal display. With the leaves being semi-evergreen, it means that some of them will fall during very cold winters or if planted in strongly exposed or coastal sites. Generally, however, the foliage lasts well through the winter months. Ligustrum ovalifolium flowers when blossomed and if left untrimmed, provides a stunning feature in July and August. The berries attract a wide variety of beautiful birds and are popular with wildlife. 

Common Uses of Ligustrum ovalifolium

Privet hedges when planted in optimal conditions, form a strong compact screen that supports noise reduction, windproofing, tolerant to pollution and acts as a privacy screen. It’s the perfect hedging to own for those living in urban areas. Ligustrum ovalifolium is an evergreen, robust plant. It grows well in all, but very wet soils with a preferred position of full sun exposure or partial shade. Coastal sites and exposure pose no problem for Privet hedging, though in these situations some foliage may be lost in the winter.

Combine Privet Hedges

Privet hedging is classically grown alone, as this allows the striking foliage to take centre stage and create an impressive feature in your garden, without the need for companion plants for added impact. 

Growth Rate of Ligustrum ovalifolium

Ligustrum ovalifolium has an average to fast-growth rate, achieving about 40-60cm a year. The final height of this hedge plant can be easily maintained between 1-4m, providing a manageable, neat hedge for your garden.

Care Advice for Privet Hedging

When it comes to maintaining your Privet hedge, we advise trimming it at least twice a year in May and August. This is so the plant can preserve its form while ensuring your hedging remains neat. However, Ligustrum ovalifolium can be trimmed more often, should you require a more formal shape. Please note, Privet hedging can defoliate (lose its leaves prematurely) when transferred. This is more common with bare roots plants, but it can also occur with root balls and pot grown plants too. If this was to happen, rest assured that Ligustrum ovalifolium often recovers well during spring and there is no permanent damage. For more information, best4hedging has put together a useful guide to hedging care, which can be found in our Advice section.

Suggested Planting Density of Privet Hedge Plants

If you require some additional information regarding Privet hedging and planting density, please see the product table. In the 'No. Per Metre' column, you will find our recommended plant density for each plant species and root type. You can find more planting density information here.

best4hedging has cell-grown and pot-grown Privet hedge plants available all-year-round, with bare roots and root balls plants available to pre-order in mid-summer and delivered from October/November through to late April/early May.

The vast majority of our Privet hedges are grown by our expert horticultural team. However, occasionally we source Ligustrum ovalifolium plants from Europe, though when this is required, we only ever use carefully selected nurseries that meet our high-quality standards. At best4hedging, we aim to provide high-quality plants at great low prices. We do everything we can to ensure that your plants reach you in the freshest condition so that you can buy Ligustrum ovalifolium online in full confidence that you are receiving a top-rate service.

The products were very well packaged and were of a significantly better quality than we had purchased from other suppliers recently. Much sturdier with lots of young growth within days of planting. The 40-60cm were longer than another supplier had sent as 3ft bare roots!

Look out for the information on product pages which explains this further where applicable and if your order is for less than £200 (ex VAT) please call or email us to agree upon a delivery contribution. This requirement only applies to those plants where it is clearly indicated on the product page

Free delivery over £150

Pallet deliveries are always undertaken on an 18-tonne vehicle (similar in size to a standard refuse vehicle). If for any reason you require a smaller vehicle please contact our sales team who can arrange this for you. There will be an additional surcharge applied for small vehicle deliveries

Delivery Timescales

99% of our orders are dispatched within 3-5 working days of receipt and most the day after the order is placed. We can do “next day delivery” on many of our products for an additional £12 (incl VAT) but please call on 01257 494 491 before placing your order to check.

We can also deliver on a specified date to suit you. Please indicate the date you would like to receive delivery in the notes section of the checkout (or place your order by phone) and we’ll do our utmost to meet that date.

Occasional hiccups can occur (such as broken down vehicles) and although we are very experienced in logistics we cannot be held liable for costs incurred or inconvenience due to late deliveries - see terms and conditions for more information.

You will receive an email or telephone call confirming the dispatch of your order 24/48 hours before it arrives with you.

Exceptions to our quick turnaround timescale

Pre-orders - if you have placed an order that includes products on pre-order, then they will be dispatched to you as soon as they are available. If your order includes pre-order bare roots or root balls you will be notified once they are being dispatched (root balls from mid to late October and bare roots from early to mid-November).

Root balls - lifting root balls involves the use of complex, heavy machinery, this lifting is carried out twice a week in the root ball season so we do still have a prompt turnaround timescale but if your order has just missed one lifting, it will be a few days before we lift again. We are always happy to confirm when we can deliver to you before you order. The benefit of this method of supplying root balls is that they are always fresh and therefore have a higher success rate than root balls that are stored out of the soil.

Weather conditions can affect dispatch - bare root and root ball plants are not lifted if the ground is too cold (it damages the roots) and the delivery of all plants can be affected if the water supply is frozen (because we water all plants before packing). Extremely hot weather can also be challenging and occasionally we hold back orders for species that are particularly vulnerable. We ask our customers to be mindful of bank holidays when couriers are not active.

We'd like to stress that although there are exceptions, the vast majority of our orders are dispatched extremely quickly and we are proud of our logistics developed over many years of delivering plants to tens of thousands of customers.

Returns

We inspect plants carefully before dispatch but accept that very occasionally things may go wrong. 
You can return your plants (within 14 days) for a refund or replacement (we’ll help with the process of returning). If your plants arrived damaged then returns are free of charge. However, we ask that you inform us as soon as possible. If you’d like to return your plants because of a change of plan or if we do not agree that the plants are significantly damaged (the loss of a few leaves in transit or a loose pot on arrival, for example, wouldn't be harmful to the plants), then we may ask you to pay the full or partial return costs if you still wanted to return them. We’re very reasonable and always aim for complete satisfaction as demonstrated by our amazing Feefo customer reviews which can be viewed here.

Should you wish to return any products that you have over-bought, no longer require or purchased in error you will incur both a return cost (different charges for pallets and Boxes) and the original cost of delivery incurred by Best4hedging. Please contact the Service team for charges and/or to organise a return. Plants will be subject to a quality control check from our Nursery upon return before any refund is authorised and processed.

Please note that in the case of damaged plants, if you have not notified us of a problem within 14 days of delivery, we consider you to have accepted the plants and Best4Hedging has no further liability for them should they fail.
