10 Green Privet Plants 3-4ft Tall, Evergreen Hedging, Grow a Quick, Dense Hedge


Out of Stock

10 Green Privet / Ligustrum Ovalfolium 90-120cm (3-4ft) Tall


These are BARE ROOTED plants which can be planted from the end of October until April and will be dispatched as soon as the weather turns cold and they become dormant. The dispatch date depends on the Autumn temperature and varies from year to year.


Privet can be grown as a small formal hedge or a large hedge. It is evergreen/semi-evergreen (can lose its foliage when transplanted in Winter) and can provide excellent shelter and privacy.


Growing Details:

Common Name: Green Privet
Genus: Ligustrum
Species: ovalifolium
Exposure: Full sun, Partial shade
Hardiness: Hardy
Soil type: Well-drained/light, Acidic, Chalky/alkaline
Height: 4m
Spread: 4m
Spacing: 3 Plants Per Metre



The denseness provided by the small ovate leaves makes for a good hedge that some small birds use for a nesting site. It has a good growth rate of 40-60cm per year dependent on conditions reaching a maximum of 4m tall. To keep it neat we would recommend trimming it twice per year. It will tolerate most conditions including shade and exposed areas. When planted as bare root, we would advise to prune the plants hard to encourage bushy growth. Great for windproofing and privacy screening.

    Plants were delivered quickly and well packaged. I wasn’t sure what to expect but they looked healthy and had a great root system on them. Now I’ve planted them they seem to be doing well. It’s the first time I have ordered from them and will do again and I would happily recommend them to anyone else thinking of ordering.
