Key Points
Full Product Details

Product Information

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.

Top Tips

For best performance, plant bare root hedges in the winter.

Care Information

On Arrival:

  • When your bare root hedges arrive, be sure to place them upright in a bucket of clean water as soon as possible for a minimum of two hours. 
  • Only remove the plants from the water when you go to plant them, to ensure the roots are wet when planted and avoiding the chance of them drying out. 
  • If you are not ready to immediately plant your bare roots when they arrive, they can be stored in a sheltered space, such as a shed, for up to a week. Just be sure to open the package they arrive in and keep the roots moist.

Planting:

  • Where possible, plant in well-drained, good-quality soil in a sunny or partially shaded space in the garden for best performance. 
  • Trim the roots slightly before planting, as this will encourage healthier growth. 
  • Dig a trenched hole in the ground in the shape of a ‘V’, deep enough for the bare root to sit comfortably so the ‘tide mark’ of the root is level with the ground. This marks the level where the bare root was previously planted before lifting for delivery.
  • Ensure the roots are completely covered in soil, then firm the soil around, as water will gather in any remaining air pockets and potentially damage the roots when it freezes.
  • Water immediately after planting, then again whenever there are three or more days of continuous dry weather.
  • Where the weather is hot, daily watering may be needed throughout the first year of growth.
  • For an impressive display when planting multiple hedges, place five per metre. For a thicker hedge, plant seven per metre.
