Which hedging should I choose?

The most economical plants are our ready-mixed packs, and you can also buy discounted packs of 50 hornbeam, beech and hawthorn hedging. 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.

Whatever hedge you choose to plant is likely to be with you for many years to come. A yew hedge, for example, can literally last 1,000 years. Weak, weedy or diseased plants struggle to established 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 guarantees your order through the growing season following planting.

How to plant and maintain hedging

Hedging can be very versatile, from providing privacy and structure to your garden through to becoming a focal point in and of itself. It can offer protection from the elements while simultaneously providing an ideal habitat for wildlife. And, what's more, hedging can be both cheap and easy to plant.

Planting a hedge depends on the specific type of plant you're using; evergreen hedges should be planted in mid Autumn, for example. However, it will always involve planning the hedgerow in advance, spacing correctly and watering well - particularly during the first couple of years of growth. Read our hedge plant advice for specific guidance on planting, pruning and caring for particular varieties of hedging.
