This product is unavailable

The Ligustrum or 'Garden Privet' is a vigorous growing bushy shrub. The glossy, oval leaves can either be pruned into a neat hedge or left to grow naturally into a more tree-like shape. This plant may produce clusters of tiny flowers between June and July that bring a keen and old-style, rural look to the garden. This plant is attractive to bees and other pollinators when in full bloom, allowing your whole garden to thrive.

How to care for your Ligustrum
Plant in a location that receives full sun throughout the day in well-draining soil. Water regularly to keep the soil moist but not wet, and apply a diluted liquid fertilizer once a month in the spring and summer to encourage total growth and flowering. This hedge will need to be pruned two to three times in a growing period. Stop pruning in the autumn and winter to avoid frost damage on new growth.
