Answer This Question

A:  I have one that is growing 1-2 feet per year for first three years, up and out. It is planted in partial shade 4-6 hours of sun, under partial tree canopy. I have not given it water or food. It seems to like the torture.

    Beautiful and sturdy.
    I blindly bought these and am so happy. They are very durable! I planted in September in zone six. I covered them with burlap for a hash michigan winter and uncovered in Mother’s Day. Beautiful!

        Privet Heaven
        Privet bushes arrived well packaged. They are in excellent condition with plenty of new growth. They are a nice size and should grow in quickly. Will provide much needed privacy from neighbors along fence line. I cannot wait ti get them planted. 😀

              Nice bushes.
              Great little bushes. They came out if Georgia to Los Angeles on UPS and the boxes were pretty beat up but the bushes were in good shape. I had prepared the ground ahead of time and tgey are thriving. Be sure you read the infirmation on the page though, depending what time of year you order, they may ship in a different cindition as they do have a dirmant period. See the pics. This is about two weeks after receipt and planting.

              beautiful plants
              planted 9 of these three weeks ago, and they're all green and thriving. We made sure to use good potting soil and water daily. would order more if I could figure out where to put them.

                good shipping and size
                3 gal delivered as promised. The containers are sturdy! Plants were stuffed into individual boxes as full as possible and not overly trimmed. What i would expect for the size. Will reorder from this nursery

                  Very healthy specimen, but overpriced for a such a tiny plant
                  I bough four of these and two of them were 13 inches tall, and two were 14 inches. For $36 each, I expected far larger. They're the height of some little annual flower. Take a look at my photo. Nothing like the display image in the web listing. Since these grow less than a foot a year in less sunny spots, this will take years to look like it's anything close to a hedge plant.

                    Looks good but too small shrub
                    Those are delivered healthily and look nice. But the size is small I expected.
