Description
Ligustrum vulgare can be used as a specimen shrub or grown together as a semi evergreen dense hedge. Wildlife loves this shrub, as the delicate white flowers are attractive in the summer months and then when they fade deep purple or black berries form. Privet likes a free draining soil and grows in any pH soil. Copes well in exposed sites. Height: 350cm (138"). Spread: 350cm (138").

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.

How to Grow
Grow Privet in any well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Plants will tolerate a wide range of soils, from sand to chalk and clay, and areas of pollution.
More Info
Ligustrum can be grown as a free-standing shrub or trained as a hedge. Free-standing shrubs will require minimal pruning; simply removed any dead, damaged or diseased growth each spring. Trim hedges in May and again in August. After pruning, mulch plants with 5cm (2”) of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plants.
Caution

Caution: toxic if eaten
