Hedging can provide nesting opportunities for birds and bring a wide range of wildlife to the garden. Many types of hedging also produce edible fruits that can be used to make jellies and drinks. To ensure rapid establishment, our hedging plants are supplied as two year old bare root plants. Available from late November to late April.

 

For better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
