    White Fuzz Question

    New member's Glossy Privet/Ligustrum Lucidum

    I've found privets to be fairly bullet proof. I don't think you'd have to worry about doing another repot this year. Not sure from your pics which is your front but IMO Photo #1 shows the best side. For what it's worth, I would reduce the height by half.
