Produce shaped hedges that would make even a professional grower envious with these semi-evergreen Privet hedges.
Dense and neat foliage of dark green oval-shaped leaves stretch across this deciduous hedge, which can fall when winter weather turns particularly cold, but should hold firm until new growth is ready in spring.
Creamy-white flowers emerge in pointed clusters across June, July, and August, followed by black berries when autumn rolls around.
What’s more, this variety has been recommended by the RHS as a ‘Plant for Pollinators’, thanks to the pollen-rich flowers that attract bees and other beneficial insects.
Privet hedging makes a great addition to gardens, even in urban or built-up areas, thanks to a top-notch resistance to pollution, while it is also hardy to conditions as cold as -10C.
For best impact, be sure to plant Privet hedging in a sunny or semi-sheltered area in more-or-less any soil type, with even windy conditions tolerated. This fast-growing variety can grow by 30-60cm every year.
Don’t forget to use one of our handy bamboo cane and spiral guard sets when planting a bare root hedge. The cane will keep the bare root upright as it grows, while the spiral guard will protect the base of the plant from wildlife to achieve as thick a hedge as possible.
Supplied as 10 bare root hedges, 40-60cm tall, ready for planting.
