Probably the most common hedging plant in Britain until fairly recently, this species of privet, is originally from Japan, Wild privet Ligustrum vulgare is the preferred choice for wildlife and will support the magnificent privet hawk-moth but so-called garden privet also has its uses and may provide nesting sites for blackbirds and other species. Left to grow a little less tidily than many gardeners allow, the structure will become more open and also offer nesting opportunities for dunnocks, linnets, greenfinches and song thrushes.
