Description

Green Privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium) Traditional British Hedge, is the most ubiquitous privet being seen in hedges all over the country and is one of the most commonly grown shrubs. It is also known as the oval leafed Privet. It was introduced from Japan in 1885 and is suitable for growing in a wide range of soil conditions and locations including in shade. In the colder areas and where it is more exposed to strong winds it can lose some or all of its leaves during the winter months, for this reason it is considered a semi-evergreen hedge.

If Green Privet is left untrimmed it will produce a white flower head that has a pungent smell which can be found unpleasant. These flowers are then followed by a black berry but if it is kept trimmed it will be very unusual to see them. With regular trimming at least 3 times per year you will get a very tight and smart hedge. If trimmed while the new growth is still quite young it will be easier to clip and give a better finish to the hedge. It is best to trim with the top slightly narrower than the base to allow sun light to reach the lower branches. If trimmed this way the Green Privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium) Traditional British Hedge Plant will keep leaves all the way to the ground.
