Ornamental & Hedging Shrubs for Sale

Shrub for Hedges & Borders

There is a fine line between a version of a shrub intended for ornamental use, and a version intended for hedging. Generally, the hedge plant is the coarser, parent variety (it also tends to be cheaper, due to being grown on a larger scale), while the ornamental shrub is produced after a careful program of cross-breeding or selection. Some species, however, are so "perfect" that there seems little need to try to improve them: many of the shrub plants in this list are just that.

All our shrubs are covered by our no-quibble Guarantee, which means you can order with complete confidence. Free delivery on orders over £60. Best advice & friendly support throughout.
