I'm not that experienced with privets. Does anyone else get a little dieback ie, twigs not budding out in spring? Nothing major just a few twigs here and there. Is this normal?

Like every plant they can be temperamental. This winter was another strange one with at one point temperatures dropping dramatically. This resulted in a lot of mine loosing their leaves and not looking over healthy. Thankfully they are all making a come back but a large one I collected a couple of years ago is showing some die back on its twigs.

I have just been for a walk around the garden and had a look at the large privet. Glad to say it is now sprouting well. Its a big lump and in a large plant pot so not easily moveable. I put it in the only place I could find for it in the garden last year. It is a slightly damp spot so coupled with the winter conditions we have had this year I'm pleased its pulling through.
