Hawgrip Plant Centre & Nursery

Hawgrip Plant Centre & Nursery

Hawgrip Nursery has been in existence for over 25 years and in 2017, when the previous owners, Colin and Helen retired, was taken over by a local family – brother and sister and is still an INDEPENDENT FAMILY BUSINESS. It still operates in a similar way with thousands and thousands of home grown plants, all grown here on site but now with a far wider range of hardy stock too.

Everything is competitively priced and Hawgrip Plant Centre is a proper Plant Centre. No coffee shop, gifts or nic nacs, just Core Gardening and if you love your garden, you’ll love it here. We aren’t all singing, all dancing and we probably aren’t considered immaculate, but we do know what we’re doing when it comes to growing plants and bedding plants in particular. This year we’ll be growing well over 1 Million and thats a lot of pricking out and potting on.

Stock changes quickly and we keep our prices keen to keep our greenhouses working at capacity. We grow in heated and unheated houses and our plants are strong and healthy. We doubt you’ll find a better product and certainly not at these prices. We grow more Perennials now than ever before and this is becoming a big part of our Summer production.

Product Details

Ligustrum privet standard , around 3ft ( from top of the pot) 

This shrub is semi-evergreen, so it can lose some of its leaves in winter. In colder regions or more exposed gardens, it may lose them all, but then fresh new foliage appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: June - July 
  • Hardiness: fully hardy (borderline) 

    With it's elegant lollipop shape, this small-leaved privet makes a stunning stand-alone specimen. It is also useful for mixed borders, where its structural silhouette will help draw the eye, and act as an anchor for more billowing foliage. As it is a relatively slow grower, it is really easy to maintain.  

  • Garden care: Clip foliage to maintain the shape in late spring or summer. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) layer of mulch around the base of the plant in autumn.
