-37% Border Privet (Ligustrum Obtusifolium) 50 seeds (#313)

Border privet is a spreading, deciduous shrub from Japan. It has small, oval to elliptical, dark, glossy green leaves which are fuzzy underneath and are held on graceful, arching and wide-spreading branches. The leaves turn a dull reddish-purple in fall. The shrub has many branches arising from ground level. The sweet fragrant white flowers are produced midsummer in pyramidal-shaped, branched heads at the ends of the stems. The flowers are followed by many dark purple to black fruits that are attractive to birds.
Border privet is not picky about locations, it grows in full sun to shade and moist to dry soils.
This shrub is excellent for use as a hedge or screen or for shaping into a small tree.
A very tolerant and easily grown plant, it succeeds in any soil that is not impoverished or water-logged. Grows well in heavy clay soils. A very ornamental plant. Prefers hotter summers than are normally experienced in Britain. This species is notably susceptible to honey fungus.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Soak seeds for 48 hours, drain and stratify.
2. Place the seeds and store in a cool (ideally +1-+3C; not freezing) and moist environment for a period of 60 days.
To accomplish this you merely place the seeds in a sealed plastic bag with moistened vermiculite (or sand or even a moistened paper towel) and refrigerate it. Use three times the amount of vermiculite as seeds. It is important to only slightly dampen the vermiculite, as excessive moisture can cause the seeds to grow mouldy in the bag.
3. After undergoing the recommended period of stratification, the seeds are ready to be removed and sown in the nursery bed for germination. Alternatively, the seed may be sown in small pots filled with moist soil and then the whole thing enclosed inside a plastic bag before placing inside a common refrigerator.
When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the cold frame for their first winter.
