Fast growing, oval-leaf privet instant hedge is an upright, dense semi-evergreen that can be planted in sun or semi-shade locations.

Nectar-rich fragrant, cream-white flowers appear in June and July. Very attractive to bees, butterflies and other flying insects.

Can be planted in most well-drained substrates but excels in chalk, alkaline pH soils. Oval-leaf instant hedges are tough enough to tolerate exposed inland and coastal locations.

We provide full planting services for Oval-Leaf Privet Hedges which includes supply, delivery and installation. Contact us today for a quotation.

Soils

Adaptable to most substrates so long as they are freely draining. Does particularly well on calcareous soils.

Potential

Tolerates most soil types and UK locations, one of the easiest hedges to maintain. Wildlife friendly but not suitable for livestock paddocks.

Annual Trimming

Oval-leaf privet hedge should be trimmed at a slight angle, wider at the bottom to allow light to shine onto the lower branches.

Characteristics

A dense versatile fast- growing hedge. Good choice for cottage gardens, coastal areas and also urban locations, due to its filtering of dust pollution
