6x Ligustrum ovalifolium - Bare-rooted

A hedge with strong roots!

A sturdy hedge! That exactly what this two-year-old privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium) is. During a mild winter, the privet will remain green. In the spring, the hedge produces white flowers. These later change into black berries. The berries are poisonous to humans, but birds love to eat them. The hedge will flourish in all types of soil and is easy to prune. For a beautiful, closed hedge, we recommend using five plants per metre. We deliver the privet as bare-root stock: just the six bare branches and roots. The plants are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already two years old. This gives them additional strength, enabling them to branch out faster than they would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They grow better and they're more economical. The hedge should be pruned twice per year. Once in the spring and once in the autumn. For the best results, give the hedge "beech and hedge" food. The hedge will grow in any moist, well-drained soil. Make sure that the ground stays moist during the initial period after planting. It's best to give them extra water during dry periods. And they need sufficient light in order to grow well. The hedge grows best in full or half sun.

Flowering Period

Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • The best time for planting the 4 Season Hedge Collection is from October to April. Prepare a hole 60-80 cm deep and improve the soil with compost and manure. Soak the plants in water for one hour before planting. Divide the shrubs in the hole, about 6 plants per 4.5 meters. The hedge will be about one metre wide. The top of the root balls should be at ground level in the garden. Fill with soil, and give it lots of water so that it almost turns into a swamp.

  • Care
  • Water the 4 Season Hedge Collection immediately after planting. After that, it is only necessary to provide water during dry periods. In winter, cover the ground under the hedge with garden compost and manure.
    4 Season Hedge Collection can be pruned
    The 4 Season Hedge Collection can be pruned twice a year. In June, prune after flowering. Every spring cut off the bare branches of the Tamarix Ramosissima's that bloomed in the previous year and have now turned into side shoots. Completely prune some of the branches of the Viburnum Opulus 'Roseum' every spring. The 4 Season Hedge Collection has a free shape and should not be cut tight.
