Long recognised as one of the most versatile and hardy of hedging plants, privet hedging is very well suited to our UK climate. Privet (Ligustrum Ovalifolium) has many merits as a hedge. It is extremely tough and hardy. It is evergreen in all but the most severe UK winters. It grows well in both sunny aspects as well as in the shade. A privet hedge is fast growing and has a naturally dense growing habit, making for a particularly dense hedge, ideal for screening. Privet has no objection to being clipped into a formal hedge but is also attractive if grown more informally, producing tiny white fragrant flowers in summer and berries in autumn.
Privet Hedging will help make your garden more attractive to wildlife. It provides a sheltered nesting place for small birds, its flowers attracting pollinators and the berries it produces in the autumn are irresistible to birds.
