Hedging Plants and Sapling Trees for Sale

The hedging plants and young trees in this section are sold in sizes between 1- 5 feet / 30cm - 175cm tall. All measurements are the height above ground level. For example, a 60/80 hedge plant is between 60cms and 80cms tall, measured from the ground to the tip of its tallest stem after planting. As a general rule, young hedging plants (or hedging whips) establish faster than bigger ones. If you are planting a hedge or wood where it will be difficult to give regular aftercare, buy smaller sizes. If you are planting trees or hedges where tending them will be easy, then you can buy taller, more mature or instant hedging plants and get a head start.
