Privet (Ligustrum)


Bareroot and rootballed hedging available November - March

Ligustrum ovalifolium (Privet)

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 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.

Aurea (Golden Privet)

Golden Privet has variegated gold and green leaves, and is excellent planted on it's own as a hedge or mixed with green privet

Ligustrum vulgare (Wild Privet)

Wild privet has more pointed leaves, larger flowers and a slightly more compact habit than regular privet. It is an excellent choice for planting as part of a mixed native hedge or on it's own. It is hardy and grown well on most soild except very wet. Prune to desired height, between 2-10ft
