Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

Golden Privet is an eye catching shrub that creates a burst of color in any landscape
Golden Privet is a striking shrub with yellow, conspicuous leaves. The tree grows tall and wide, which makes them ideally suited to hedges. For a natural, beautiful effect, leave them untrimmed as these shrubs are at their best when they look slightly untamed. Prune them in late winter or early spring, and prune them only to remove their dead leaves or branches. Their wild beauty extends year-round: golden-yellow leaves most of the year and purple-red foliage in the fall.
In the spring, Golden Privet bloom with clusters of white flowers and blueberries
They grow 8-10 feet, perfect size if you’d like to screen off your garden to passers-by. You can use them as hedges or place individual plants sparingly in an urban or country garden. For landscaping, consider contrasting their bright yellow foliage with white or red flowers.
Golden Privets do need care. Water them weekly or when the top three inches of soil are dry. If heat is extreme, they will need more watering. If they’re along a humid coast, they will require less watering. Feeding time for the Golden Privet is in early spring. This is when you should apply a slow-release fertilizer. Golden Privets can tolerate a variety of soils but adding compost will help maintain the plant’s bright foliage. To see Golden Privets at their most active, keep them away from shade as they do like full sun.
Golden privet would be a lovely addition to any landscape.
Also keep an eye out for trips, an insect that eats the plant’s leaves. If trips are eating your plant, you’ll see the leaves dotted with dark excrement. Spray the plants with a water hose to get rid of the pesty insects. You can also spray the foliage with insecticidal soap or narrow-range oil.
