Planting & Care

1. Planting: It’s highly adaptable, but your Waxleaf Privet Shrub needs an area with well-drained soil and 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day. After you’ve selected a suitable location, dig a hole that’s two or three times the width of your shrub’s root ball. Then, place your plant, back fill the soil and water to settle its roots.

2. Watering: Water deeply and regularly during your Waxleaf’s first growing season to establish its root system – this typically means watering about once a week, or when the surrounding soil is dry. Check for soil dryness about 2 to 3 inches down in the surrounding soil.

3. Fertilizing: Feed your Waxleaf Privet Shrub with a general-purpose fertilizer in early spring, before new growth begins.

4. Pruning: If you want a neater, tidier appearance for your Waxleaf Privet, prune or shear annually in winter to shape it. If you’re shaping to your desired size and shape, prune as often as needed.

Waxleax Privet Hedge

Overall, very happy with my purchase. One of the hedge plants was a good bit smaller than the other two but all arrived healthy and on time.

The shipping was fantastic!! The plants were bright, healthy, totally undamaged. Eight large shrubs and all were keepers! Thanks so much - and btw, the service rep, Jessica, stayed on the phone helping me select the perfect plants for almost an hour until we decided on the perfect ones. Thanks!!

This was my first time ordering from FGT. I ordered 6 Waxleaf Privet hedges and a burning bush JUST to get started. I will ALWAYS order from them.. In other words...Im a lifetime customer.

I'll be honest, I have never ordered plants/ trees online before, but I am so happy I took the chance with FGT. I ordered 6 privets and 1 burning bush to start with. They all arrived in great condition. After a couple of days a few of the privets didn't seem to be doing well. I called to see what I could do and Missy took care of it right away and sent replacements for the ones that did die. Not their fault...plants are plants. My burning bush is amazing. I will ALWAYS be a forever customer with FGT. I have 10 acres to fill up, so Im looking forward to ordering more of plants, scrubs and trees.. Another thing... if you're new to a certain plant or tree and you're unsure about ANYTHING they will answer you with such detail and professionalism. If your on the fence about ordering online from FGT just do it. You'll be incredibly satisfied and happy to see your new plants triving. Thank you FGT. I'll update with some pictures, but they are all so GORGEOUS. I couldn't be happier.
