Ligustrum ovalifolium Hedge Plants Description

Privet hedge plants (Ligustrum ovalifolium) are known for their rich, oval-shaped green leaves and masses of delicate white flowers that bloom in summer, attracting butterflies and bees. Once established, Ligustrum ovalifolium is almost a permanent evergreen hedge, but can experience some leaf fall during the winter, which is why it is considered semi-evergreen.

Planting Privet hedging is popular due to its dense foliage that not only offers privacy, but also protects against pollution when grown as a formal hedge, making it perfect for urban or suburban gardens. This robust shrub is a relatively fast grower around 30cm per year and grows well in most conditions, except for particularly wet sites. Privet is also suitable for coastal locations, although you may notice some defoliation during winter.

For alternatives to common Privet hedging, there is Golden Privet which boasts the same growing habits but more colourful foliage, and Wild Privet, which has narrow leaves and a looser growing pattern.

Premium Products - Minimum Order Quantity of 3

Premium products (indicated by a forklift icon and 'Premium Product' in the product table), require specialist delivery due to their size and weight. For these items a minimum order quantity of 3 applies.

*All premium products are excluded from any promotional discounts.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

General hedge trimming should be done twice a year, once in early June and again in late September. It is important to prune at the right time, so as not to remove new growing shoots.
