Green Privet Hedging Plants

Ligustrum Ovalifolium, Oval Leaved Privet Hedge

Green Privet or Ligustrum Ovalifolium (Oval Leaved Privet) is an excellent choice for a formal hedge and they also make super topiary. Privet hedges have long been favoured as a boundary hedge as they 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. Ligustrum Ovalifolium has been the preferred choice for a green privet hedge as they tend to hold their leaves more reliably than the wild privet (Ligustrum Vulgare). Privet is a fast growing and tough plant with oval, rich green leaves. 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. Privet can be cut hard in spring to restore shape and keep the hedge within bounds. Privet would be an excellent choice for a reliable, cost effective, easy to maintain boundary hedge.

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.
