Privets that wont grow

Posted: 13/09/2013 at 08:01

Thanks, I will give the cutting back a go, the grass around the base was a temporary feature!, so i will remove that. This summer has been so hectic that the rest of the garden has been quite neglected (what the picture doesnt show is just how big the garden is).

Thanks for the advice though.

 There has never been a wall there, in fact the one that grows the best is next to a fence we had erected, where they are planted is in the border between 2 lawns.

I planted some bare root privets, nearly 3 years ago, they were approx 24" tall when we got them, with thintention of them developing into a barrier between our next door neighbours garden.

They have grown very little since being planted, with the exception of 1 plant that has gone wild! the rest have branched out a little, but do not have the bushy appearance i would expect.

I have been advised to trim them back, but unsure as to how far i should go.

Thanks
