Highlights of New Lines coming soon

As autumn approaches our thoughts turn to what we have growing on for the coming planting season. This year we have an amazing selection of lovely hedges that are some of the best that we have grown.

A selection of what we will have coming on line in the next month or so is

Carpinus betulus (Hornbeam) a great all-round hedging plant. This gives great coverage from a young age and will grow in every soil type. This is a hedge that the sales team love to offer as they know that it will not disappoint with its performance.

Mixed native hedging. (Field Hedge) we grow this in 5 different mixes which when planted in a random fashion will give you the look of a long-established field hedge. We suggest that you look at doing predominantly mix 1 and 2 with a few of Mixes 3, 4 and 5 mixed in to give maximum effect.

Fagus sylvatica Purpurea (Purple beech or Copper beech) a superb hedge with lovely deep purple leaf colouration. Probably one of the slowest growing hedges we grow but with perseverance it will give you an amazing vibrant coloured hedge. The youngest that we offer has been growing together for 2 years so that you get the best hedge.

Prunus lus. Angustifolia (Portugal Laurel). This is one of the best evergreen hedges that we grow and this year they have really enjoyed the warmth of the summer. For a young crop they are the densest and fullest we have produced for a few years and will make a great hedge.

Griselinia littoralis, with its unique green leaves, this slightly tender evergreen makes a superb hedge in the milder areas of the country and in larger towns and cities. When grown in a sheltered area this will tolerate free draining soils and grow vigorously.

70-90cm tall, 100cm long, 20cm wide

Osmanthus burkwoodii, this is a small leaved evergreen that can be kept trimmed low to make a great Box substitute. It has a dark green leaf and in the spring it has highly fragrant white flowers. It is becoming a favourite hedge for one member of the Hedgeplants sales team
