Wild Privet Hedge Plants Description

This is the variety that is most often included in mixed native hedges to give some element of evergreen cover in Winter (whereas the Common Privet and Japanese Privet varieties are more usually used in suburban settings) and very useful to provide lots of nest sites for wild birds. This variety has smaller (than the other varieties) creamy white flowers in Spring, popular with butterflies and birds. It is suitable for all soils apart from wet sites. Leaves and flowers are harmful if eaten.

Please note that Privet can defoliate when re-planted (especially bare root) - plants will recover in Spring.

Cell grown and pot grown plants are available all year round. Bare roots are only available from november to late April/early May. Root Ball plants are available from mid-October to mid-April.

Further Information
Further Information

Planting distances are very much a matter of choice - for bare roots, 3 plants per metre is adequate, 5 is good, 7 in a double staggered row will give a dense hedge quicker. Generally, smaller plants should be planted at higher density. Cell grown should be planted at 4 per metre in a single row or ideally 6 per metre in a staggered row.

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

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Wild Privet can be pruned regularly throughout the summer. Stop pruning in late summer to avoid frost damage on new shoots
