Chinese Privet is considered a weed in New Zealand (and it definitely behaves like one on my lifestyle block)
I've removed a hole lot of privet growing in my hedge, but I don't know how to dispose of the cuttings. If I absolutely have to I can throw then in the general waste as a last resort, but are there better options?
The privet just has leaves - no flowers or fruit.
Am I correct in surmising that Chinese privet spreads by birds eating the seeds and dropping them? If so, am i safe to put the cuttings in an area at the back of my property or give it a few days/weeks and then put it through my garden shredder?
