Care Advice

We recommend pruning in either spring or summer. Mature plants can tolerate hard pruning in spring, cutting back to the old wood. This way the plant can keep its form nice and tidy but you can trim it more often if you have a specific shape in mind.

Plant Combinations

Green Privet is rarely grown with other plants and is usually the main feature in the garden with no need for any companions.
