7 Green Privet Hedging Plants Ligustrum Hedge 10-30cm,Dense Evergreen,Big Pots


7 Green Privet / Ligustrum Ovalfolium 10-30cm Tall in 9cm Pot


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.

    They arrived very well packed and potted and easy to transplant. They looked good from the moment of planting. Lovely little privet bushes. Was surprised there was no delivery tracking. I did not even know the delivery date. Fortunately I was in when the plants arrived.

    Healthy plants that arrived quickly and were well packaged. Good quality hedging and excellent value. I have also purchased hornbeam hedging from Beechwood which was equally as good. Thank you.

    Arrived very quickly and well packaged (the packers must be good at doing puzzles). Plants were all very healthy and ready for planting. The best bit was that I got 7 plants for little more than a local 'chain' garden centre wanted for 1
