What is Privet?

Tall shrubs or small trees that spread by means of thousands of blueblack berries that form after flowering.

 

How to protect your plants

Cut established trees close to the ground and paint immediately with a solution of Yates Tree and Blackberry Killer mixed at the recommended strength. Watch carefully for re-growth. Trimming the plants immediately after blooming will help prevent the development of a large proportion of the seeds.
