is box plant the same as the privet hedge?
went to the garden centre today and they where selling box plants it didnt say how tall they grow
they seem to look the same if not does the box plant grow as fast and as high as the privet?
They are fast-growing and make for a wonderful privacy hedge. We had several planted when our home was built and they were less than a foot tall. Within three years, they were over 7 feet tall and absolutely gorgeous. I did prune them once this past spring but they really don't have to be pruned IMO (as long as you plant them where you don't mind how tall they get). They are SO much prettier than boxwood and the other common hedges/privacy screens.andrea922 wrote:Does anyone know how fast privet grows? I was considering planting it at the border of my property for privacy.
