Hedge Plants & Guards

We grow all our hedgerow plants either in our UK based plant nursery or in our fields in Belgium. All of our hedge plants and hedging are grown from UK stock including our wonderful native hedging mixes. From popular garden hedging such as Privet, Yew, Laurel, and Box to hedge plants such as Dog Rose, Blackthorn, and Hawthorn, we have a rich and varied selection available to order online. All in stock items are available for next day delivery across most of the UK.

Bare Root or Potted Hedging?

Bare root hedging can be planted from November to May when the plants are dormant. Bare root plants are a great and cost-effective hedging solution. When they arrive with you the plants will be dormant – so it can take a while for your plants to settle in! It is not unusual to see limited growth in the first few months or so whilst your plants establish their roots. Don’t worry this is totally normal! When Spring arrives your plants will soon develop and thrive!

Potted Plants are the easiest and most straightforward way of planting Hedging. They can be planted all year round. Potted plants are ideal for the summer months when bare root plants are unavailable. Our Potted plants are all grown in our UK based plant nursery and have benefited from the continuous nurture of our resident plant team! Potted plants have the advantage of a fully established root system – so as soon as they are in the ground they will quickly flourish!

Tree Guards, Spiral Guards & Rootgrow

It’s not just hedging that you’ll find in this section, we also stock tree care products including spiral guards and tree guards, perfect for protecting a young and newly established hedge as well as Rootgrow to help give your new hedging the best start in life. Our tree and spiral guards can be used to protect young trees and saplings from plant pests such as rabbits, and deer, as well as damage from herbicides.

How to Plant:

We recommend planting 4-5 plants per meter in a Zig-Zag pattern, depending on the size you buy, if you want a thick garden hedge reasonably quickly. For best results when planting your hedge, we would recommend that you use Rootgrow gel – it increases the growth rate by up to 50% and really helps your hedging to establish itself quickly.

Watering & Care

It is essential to water your plants regularly. Newly planted hedging and hedge plants need to be soaked frequently – especially during the first year of planting. In the winter when your plants are dormant it can be very dry so make sure to water them generously! When your plants have been in for a month or so you can feed them with a bonemeal or similar fertiliser. We do these and they can be found in the ‘Fertiliser’ section of our site!
