Golden Privet Hedging Plants

Ligustrum Ovalifolium Aureum, Golden Privet Hedge

Golden Privet or Ligustrum Ovalifolium Aureum is an excellent alternative to the standard green privet hedge. Suitable choice for a formal hedge and they also make super topiary. Golden Privet hedges will have their best colour if planted in full sun. Golden Privet are easy to grow, easy to maintain and very reliable. Privet is semi- evergreen so will hold onto its leaves except over hard winters or in coastal areas. Golden Privet is a fast growing plant with oval, rich yellow leaves often marked green in the centre. Small creamy white flowers form in summer though normally only if left unclipped. The flowers would be followed by black berries for the birds in Winter. Repeated clipping in summer produces the best specimen hedges and topiary. Golden Privet can be cut hard in spring to restore shape and keep the hedge within bounds. Golden Privet would be an excellent choice for a easy to maintain boundary hedge with a bright golden contrast to the many greens of the garden.

Rootballed plants are available in bigger sizes from October through to April, weather dependent. These plants are grown in bigger sizes going up to 3 metres in height. Rootballed plants are lifted during the plants dormant period. This reduces the amount of stress imposed on the plants and increases the chances of successful re-establishment. Plants are also lifted to order to minimise the time they are stored out of the ground before replanting. Although rootball plants may seem expensive many of these plants will be between 6-15 years old and will have been root pruned and trimmed many times before they are lifted. Rootball plants tend to be bushier than pot grown plants as they have been out in the field and more exposed to the elements. They are lifted from the field using specialist machinery and the soil rootball is hessian wrapped to protect it. This protective wrapping should be left on at planting and will naturally bio degrade.
