Formal Hedging Plants for Sale

Formal Hedging Plants

There are relatively few hedging plants that are widely used for formal hedges: they do the job so wonderfully well that there is no need for other options.

Beech, copper or green, grows anywhere there is good drainage and decent light, while Hornbeam will grow in the wet, heavy soils and shady places that beech can't stand. They are not evergreen like the others, but they hold their Autumn leave in winter and complement evergreen hedges beautifully.

Laurels block noise and light pollution about as well as holly, which also clips beautifully for topiary. They, like the king of formal hedging, Yew, will just about grow in the dark, 
All of these plants are tough and regrow from old wood, forgiving the worst mistakes you can make when you are clipping them.
