Bare Root Wild Privet
(Ligustrum vulgare)

Wild Privet is a deciduous, semi-evergreen plant that is ideal for providing nesting homes for birds, and is slightly larger but less compact than Ligustrum ovalifolium.

Bare root Wild Privet plants are only available to buy and plant from November - March, but can be pre-ordered at any time of the year outside of the bare root season.

Wild Privet's creamy-white flowers appear in Spring and are loved by the birds and butterflies. Though they are edible to birds etc., the leaves and flowers are harmful if eaten.

It's quite a hardy plant, being tolerant to all soil types- though it cannot be planted in very wet sites.

When your Wild Privet plant is delivered, make sure you plant the bare root as soon as you can. You should not leave it for any longer than a couple of days, or so, and do not let the roots dry out.

Wild Privet can reach an ultimate height of 4m with an average growth rate between 20/40cm per year.
  • Growth rate: Average (20-40cm per year)
  • Ideal height: 4m+ Tall
  • Soil type: Normal, chalk, clay
  • Exposure: Inland, coastal, exposed

  • Evergreen foliage? Semi-evergreen

When your bare root Wild Privet plant arrives, dunk it into a bucket of water for at least 2 hours. The roots must be wet when planted .

You will need to prune your Wild Privet plant regularly throughout Summer. Make sure you stop pruning by the end of Summer, however, as you don't want to risk frost damaging the new shoots.

Root Types Summary

  • Bare Root
    Bare Root

    Field grown, bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from autumn to spring. We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the season but they can be pre-ordered in summer. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options.

  • Pot Grown
    Pot Grown

    Pot grown plants can be planted year round and make a convenient option. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements.

  • Root Ball
    Root Ball

    Also field grown, root ball plants are scooped out of the ground using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks. They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly.

  • Instant Hedging
    Instant Hedging

    Grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season. Our instant hegding troughs create a dramatic, instant hedge effect.
