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.

Privet Plants Are The #1 Used Evergreen Hedge
If you want a fast-growing privacy hedge -- or if you want to fill in a garden border pronto -- privet (Ligustrum spp.) is the plant you want. This sizable genus of dense green shrubs offers privacy, sound insulation, wind resistance and more.
California Privet (L. ovalifolium)
Green or yellow-variegated leaves adorn this privet. It can grow up to 15 feet wide and tall; if you prefer shorter hedges, trim it often. White flowers and black, globelike berries attract butterflies and birds. Despite its name, this privet is native to Japan. Be aware that California privet can be invasive in some areas.
Regal Border Privet (L. obtusifolium)
Often topping out at about 12 feet, Regal Border privet is perfect for hedges and is suitable for people who want plants that are easy to care for. It's known to attract bees with its strong-smelling flowers.
Golden Privet (L. 'Vicaryi')
This variegated privet is known for its yellow leaves that are more brightly colored when the shrub grows in full sun. This is shorter privet with a height of about 10 feet. Golden Privet is relatively low-maintenance.
Northern Privet (L. x ibolium)
Also called north privet, northern privet is one of the fastest-growing plants you can have. It is very dense, especially if you trim it often when it's young. It grows to only 8 to 12 feet, so pruning is done more for shape than to control massive growth.
Everyone loves semi and evergreen hedges. Privet plants are by far the most sought after because of their evergreen looks, solid, dense structures and their ability to give a border that is very thick and dense.
