For Town Gardens and Country Estates

Most plants are sold in sizes between 1- 5 feet / 30cm - 175cm tall. These dimensions are 'when planted' so a 100/125cm plant is at least 100cms tall when in the ground but not more than 125cms, measured to the tip of its tallest stem after planting. Our advice is always that young plants (or whips) settle in and grow away better than bigger ones. So if you are planting a hedge or wood where it will be difficult to give regular aftercare, always buy smaller sizes. On the other hand, if you are planting somewhere where maintenance is easier then you can buy taller plants for more immediate impact.

Bareroot hedge plants are cheaper and easier to handle when planting. Bareroot stock is delivered during winter and spring (Nov-early May) when the plants are dormant. If you want to buy outside the winter months, then we have pot-grown stock for year round delivery. The most economical plants are our ready mixed packs and you can also buy discounted packs of 50 Hornbeam, Beech and Hawthorn. If you are not sure what to do our 5 minute videos on planting country hedges and formal hedges should answer most of your questions. The things a new hedge needs most are: water in dry weather and protection from weeds and vermin.

Our quality stock. Whatever you choose to plant is likely to be with you for many years to come. A yew hedge can literally last 1,000 years. Weak, weedy or diseased plants struggle to establish and cause more trouble in the long run than strong, healthy high quality stock. So wherever you buy, choose a UK supplier that grows well, lifts regularly, has proper cold store facilities and that guarantees your order through the growing season following planting.

For ease of selection you will find our range in the following categories:
