Care instructions

Grown in well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Small leaf privet grows rapidly and needs clipping quite often in the summer months. It tends to start its growth a bit later than other topiary plants but once it has started it needs clipping every two to three weeks. It stops growing around September time and remains the same shape until the next spring.
