Product Description

Box Leaf Privet is one of the most popular as it grows all year round, it will grow in almost any soil or conditions and if it is kept trimmed it looks as good or better than English Box. Box Leaved Privet love hot sunny positions, they don’t do well in a shady corner, and almost any soil as long as it is moderately well drained.

To create a dense bushy low hedge or border you only need to plant 4 plants per metre. Box Leaf Privet loves plenty of water, regular fertilising and regular trimming, given these are provided, you will find that you can create a dense fine traditional or English Box style border in just one full growing season with very little cost.
