Reinvent your garden
Ask your gardening question. I cut mine back quite harshly in either autumn or winter and it was fine. Is there a new source of light pollution at night? It will grow in any soil except for water-logged soil. If done correctly, every treated privet stem should die off, making a second application unnecessary in most cases. Good as an intruder deterrent. As for the best time of the year - I don't think it matters.

We would also like to thank the planting team who after days of hard digging continued to move trees even as a lightning storm loomed, ensuring it looks absolutely perfect. Use a saw for the base of the plant and for the branches that are too big for the pruning sheers. Step 1 Cut off all the small branches on the privet using pruning sheers. Because if its vigorous growth and ability to spread, this tree is usually only grown in the variegated form, which is not only attractive, but smaller growing and flowering less often. People are always so quick to complain but sadly not so quick to compliment so on behalf of my husband and I, thanks to the team at hedgesonline. Step 6 Haul the branches, roots, and other remains to a trash bin or preferably, if one is available to you, a greenery recycling bin or compost heap.
