Why buy Box Leaf Privet?

Box Leaf Privet is one of the most popular hedging plants 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 loves 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.

  • Great for hedging and low borders
  • Fast growing
  • Drought and frost tolerant

Chris says: “For a fast growing box hedge that is versatile and hardy, you can’t go past the Box Leaf Privet. This attractive border plant is drought, salt AND frost tolerant and will grow in both full sun or part shade. It is a fantastic alternative that will look just as good if not better than the English Box.
