Privet is the name given for the evergreen shrub; Ligustrum Ovalifolium, which adorns many a British garden, and is normally used to act as a barrier or as a privacy hedge. It is often said that the name 'privet' is related to private, although there is no real evidence whatsoever to support this!

There are many types of plants and shrubs that are suitable as hedging plants but privet is by far one of the most common used varieties. It needs to be maintained otherwise it can become a little untidy and unruly, but a well looked after privet hedge can be a good investment. It can act as a privacy screen or a windbreak, offer shelter to wildlife and is a good choice for topiary specimens.
