10 x Ligustrum ovalifolium (Privet) 60-90cm bare root
10 bare root 2yr old plants approx. 60-90m tall
Privet is a quick growing, evergreen/semi-evergreen shrub with oval, rich green leaves. It produces clusters of pretty white flowers from August to September (only if not pruned every year) followed by black berries in August. Privet is excellent for formal hedges as it can be clipped regularly into sharp shapes to create a lush, dense hedge (prune twice a year in late spring and mid summer). Alternatively it can be left to grow into a more informal shape, where it will flower and fruit freely. Grows well on any well-drained soil. Prune to desire height, between 2-10ft.
Recommended planting distance: 1ft (30cm) apart
Hardiness: Fully Hardy
Suitable for: Single species evergreen hedge, formal or informal
Features: Evergreen, easy to trim and shape, flowers if not trimmed every year
Bare root plants: These plants can be planted anytime between November and March. We keep our bare root hedging in tubs of damp compost at the nursery. If you are not planting your plants immediately then keep the roots damp (preferably in compost) and out the sun until you are ready to plant.
