Description

Privet or Ligustrum ovalifolium, is a classic hedge choice and thrives in sun or shade, is fast growing and provides dense cover. If kept pruned as a hedge it is unlikely to flower. Normally evergreen but may loose some foliage leaves in very cold winters.

Flowers: July

Height: 9ft/3m if unprunned.

Hedges within gardens create a softer, more wildlife friendly boundary and can provide a great seasonal display of flowers, berries and autumn colour.

Even a small hedge can create your own little wildlife habitat. They can be close clipped or left a bit wilder, a mix of native varieties will give different periods of interest and a good nesting and winter food source for birds.

Planting distances vary from 30-60cm/1-2ft depending on the variety and the size of hedge required.

For a denser hedge plant a staggered double row with 38cm/15in between rows and 45cm/18ins between plants. All our hedging will be delivered as bare rooted bundles, with approximate height of up to 100cm/3.5ft depending on the variety.

Plant size is approximately 45-60cm on arrival.
