Bareroot Ligustrum ovalifolium Hedge Plants

Green Privet makes a tough and resilient evergreen hedge plant that can grow to 4 metres if left to its own devices and it does it super efficiently. It grows quickly, clips neatly and manages to flourish even in poor, compacted soil or when in the shade. All this makes it the most popular member of our range of privet hedging for sale. It seems to be oblivious to pollution and so is perfectly happy next to a busy road, occluding light and noise from the road at the same time. As a result, it is THE most valuable hedge for that tricky combination of an urban area and poor soil. The only thing that Green Privet does not enjoy is being waterlogged so make sure that you give it decent drainage. The leaves are small, oval-shaped and slightly pointed at the end. They are a matt green, uniform in colour and knit together to make a lovely, luxurious hedge that will fill a gap or form a boundary in no time at all. In about July the plant is swathed in long, sweet-smelling, white flowers. If neglected, green privet can be rejuvenated by hard pruning back down to the ground from where it will rise, phoenix-like, over the next couple of seasons. In a very hard and frosty winter, green privet may lose its leaves but soon recovers them once spring arrives.

Privet Privacy

Ligustrum ovalifolium makes an excellent boundary hedge, especially where you want protection from traffic noise and light (not to mention the odd passer by) all year round. It grows fast and so will quickly screen out an unsightly low building or wooden fence. Because it is so tough you can plant privet where you may have despaired of ever being able to do better than bare soil. If you are growing it where there is some light then add in a bit of Rosa Rugosa - another tough hedging plant that will produce pink or white flowers in the summer and gorgeous hips in the autumn. And while you are planting your hedge, add a few clumps of Narcissi at the edge of the trench to bring some spring cheer (it also saves you digging twice). For the more artistic, you can also do some pretty fancy topiary with privet. Generally, the long hedge clipped in the form of a dragon or a reclining lady is made from Green privet.

Ponderings on Privet

Green privet is a Japanese plant that was introduced to Britain in 1885. The Victorians fell in love with it because it grew happily in their polluted, smoggy inner cities. Birds love the berries in autumn and it is a stick insect's essential diet in the UK!
