Welcome!

Personally, I would plant in late spring or early summer. That way, you probably won't experience anymore freezing temperatures and the Privets have plenty of time to establish before next fall/winter. I say 'probably' because last year we had a surprise snow storm in the middle of June. Smiling

Welcome to NGA @jv627! Smiling I agree with Daisy about late spring planting in your zone John.
