Thorny Hedging Plants for Sale

Thorned Hedging Varieties

It is an unfortunate fact of life that thorny plants are more in demand every year, but security is not the only reason to use them. Many of them are also beautiful with a long season of interest, and a number of small birds love to nest among the spines where the cats can't get them.
