Native Hedging
We offer two options for mixed hedging at a per metre price. They are based on a planted hedge as double staggered rows at 4 plants per metre having a 30cm gap between the centres of rows.

Available  mid November to March.
All prices include VAT.

 Native Hedging

Beech:This is a good alternative to a conifer hedge; the young leaves turn a colourful light brown in the autumn and remain on the hedge during the winter to maintain an effective screen. For a really thick Beech hedge, plant as left, or at 3 plants per metre where a thick barrier is not so important. Why not mix in a bit of Holly or the odd purple Beech. Beech will not tolerate heavy soils.

Hornbeam:An excellent alternative to Beech on heavier land; the dead leaf will hang on in the winter in a similar way to Beech only with a darker colour.

Lonicera:

A good evergreen hedge but needs to be planted at the same density as for the native hedge (see diagram). In severe winters it can die back.

Laurel (Common and Portuguese):Plant 60-90cm apart (2-3ft). It needs a bit of space and is best not cut mechanically as any half cut leaves can turn brown.

Yew: Take care when siting this plant as all parts of it are very poisonous.

Holly: Not as slow as you think, mix native Holly with variegated forms.

Native Hedging (Pot grown)

There is a wide range of suitable plants; the following are just a few examples:

Berberis darwinii and stenophylla: Evergreens with flowers and berries.

Pyracantha: Will eventually form a thick and very thorny hedge but needs to be planted at a close spacing if you want a quick effect.

Cotoneaster: Various types including Franchetii, Simonsii and Lacteus, you generally get a good display of berries to attract the birds in winter.

Rosa rugosa: An attractive flowering hedge, can be planted bare root for economy.

Lavender and Box:Not for a stock proof hedge, makes a good border edging. Ilex Crenata is a good alternative to Box.

Escallonia: A pretty flowering evergreen.
