A popular choice for hedging in the UK; Privet is easy to grow, tolerant of pollution and drought resistant. Hedges can last many years, are fast-growing, easy to trim and maintain, and are generally untroubled by pests and diseases.
Ligustrum ovalifolium is ideal for any size of garden, in sun or deep shade, and makes a neat and tidy evergreen hedge of any shape. Plants will produce clusters of white flowers, but this is unlikely if hedges are trimmed regularly. Height and Spread: Up to 4m (13').
For instant impact try one of one of our innovative trough-grown hedges! Each trough contains a 1 metre length of pre-planted hedging to create a mature looking hedge from the very moment it is planted. With well-established root systems, you’ll find that trough-grown hedges are correctly spaced, making them much easier to plant. The healthy framework of branches are nicely knitted together, and can be trimmed to the ideal height immediately after planting. Better still, you can plant them all year round, so long as adequate irrigation is provided. If planting is delayed then trough-grown hedges can be easily maintained until you are ready, without the need for ‘heeling in’.
Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
While Ligustrum are usually evergreen plants, staying in leaf through winter, severe cold temperatures can cause them to drop some or all of their leaves. This is a natural reaction and causes no permanent damage even when specimens lose all their leaves. New growth comes back quickly in spring.
