The hedging is always popular, especially for those customers who have urban or suburban gardens, because of its resilience to pollution. This durability of Privet is also seen in its ability to grow in all areas, including coastal, as long as your garden is not in a wet site, as the hedging will struggle. Also please note that if you do live in a coastal location, there is a possibility the hedging may defoliate a bit in winter.
The Privet (if preferred) will grow tall, permitting it is trimmed twice a year, at the start of June and at the end of September, trimming at these times will ensure you won’t cut any fresh growing shoots. In one year, the Privet will grow from 20cm – 40cm, depending on factors like watering and nutrients, placing it into the “medium growing hedge” category.
We offer Privet from 15cm to 200 cm tall, meaning you have the choice to affordably grow the hedging or receive it fully-grown and instantly have the benefits of its privacy, wind protection, and resistance to pollution.
The recommended planting density varies depending on the height of Privet you buy. For example:
Small – 15cm-80cm it is recommended that you plant 4 per metre
Medium – 80cm-160cm it is recommended that you plant 2-3 per metre
Large – 160cm-200cm it is recommended that you plant only 1-2 per metre
