Green Privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium) is one of the most popular and familiar hedging species. The pointed oval leaves are mid green when young, becoming darker as they age, with fragrant white flowers produced in summer especially on untrimmed plants.
Green Privet is a semi evergreen hedging plant, the leaves are retained on the plant in milder winters but some may drop in cold snaps or in more exposed situations, the hedge will however re leaf early the following spring. In the shelter of more suburban gardens Green Privet hedges will usually keep their leaves during most winters.
Privet is a popular hedge because it is virtually indestructible, here we have a plant that will grow in any situation from full sun to full shade and in any soil including chalk (that does not become waterlogged).
A Green Privet hedge can be kept in good order with just a single trim at any time each year, twice if you want a very manicured look. They can be used to create a hedge of any height from 90cm up to around three metres, and with a moderately fast growth rate of 30cm or more you don’t need to wait too long.
We have a very wide selection of Green Privet hedging, from the traditional and very economical bare rooted shrubs available from November until April, pot grown hedging in a very wide range of sizes, big bushy root ball Privet and instant hedging units if immediate impact is the main priority.
Planting distance is a matter of personal choice but to help we have given our recommended density per metre next to each size, you can set yours a little further apart if you are patient – or closer for quicker results.
