California Privet, or Oval Leaf Privet, is infamous for its use as a privacy hedge throughout the estates of the Hamptons. It's speedy growth and dense branching can be tightly pruned to create artistic hedges that can not be seen through. A very tough plant, California Privet can handle Full-Sun to Part-Shade as well as windy and salty conditions, making it a perfect choice for the coastal areas of Long Island. It is important to fertilize and prune your privet hedge twice a year for optimal growth and performance. Due to high-demand, there has been a shortage of privet throughout the Northeast since 2015.

Heavy or 'Hvy' trees/shrubs is the distinction between the fullness and width of the plant. Heavy plants have been trimmed to promote the growth of the plant to be full and/or wider then the non-heavy plant. 

We ship two ways. One is "Local Delivery". That means one, or more, of our crew members personally delivers your order in a Bay Gardens truck or van to your home. This option is only available in certain zip codes throughout NY, NJ & CT.

The other method is "Common Carrier Shipping". Only certain plants can be sent this way. Usually ones that are under 4 feet tall. When we ship this way, one of our crew members boxes up your order and then sends it to your home via UPS or FedEx.

For more information on our shipping methods, browse our delivery pages in the "ABOUT" tab above.

Plants with listed heights (i.e. 4-5 ft) are measured from the top of the root ball to the top of the plant. Basically, what will be exposed out of the ground after planting. We do not count the root ball or container in the tree size.

Many of our plants come in the plastic Nursery Containers in which they are grown. These containers come in various sizes. Typically, the larger the container, the more mature and larger the plant is. The containers are measured by the "Gallon". More often than not, the larger the gallon size, the larger the plant.
