  • Bare root plants available!

    Plants for hedges are supplied bare root from November to March when they are dormant. This is an economical way to plant new deciduous hedges. Our plants are well rooted, strong plants you may see cheaper on the web but would find it hard to get better quality.

    Our Hedge Packs of 25 plants are ideal for small quantities (one pack is sufficient for 5 metres planted in a double staggered row) or are ideal for gapping up an existing hedge. Available in a 60-80cm size comprising 12 Hawthorn, 4 Field Maple, 3 Hazel, 3 Spindle and 3 Blackthorn.

    Hedge packs are also available in the nursery at the larger size 90-120cm comprising 13 Hawthorn, 4 Field Maple, 4 Hazel and 4 Hornbeam.

    For larger quantities our classic Country Hedge mix is available with 50% hawthorn and a combination of other species supplied in bundles of 25 plants.

    Single species such as beech and hornbeam make attractive garden hedges . A variety of sizes are available, the largest usually used for hedging is 125-150cm. Evergreen plants are supplied at small sizes such as Yew 30-40cm and Box 20-30cm - well branched sturdy plants.

    There are many advantages of hedge planting including benefits to wildlife - creating food, shelter and habitat; hedges provide design features in gardens, division of larger areas, shelter for seating areas and vegetable patches;  plus there is the benefit to the environment of soaking up air pollution in urban areas, and slowing wind and water erosion of soil.

  • Rootballed Hedge Plants available!

    Great quality rootballed plants for Hedging are now available !

     

    Yew, Taxus baccata and Western Red Cedar - Thuja plicata both make great hedges. They clip well and create thick hedges for divisions or can be used as a backdrop to other planting.

    Field grown and pruned to create bushy plants we have a range of sizes from 60-80cm tall to 2.2m. Taxus baccata prefers well drained soil, Thuja plicata tolerates heavier wetter sites. Both tolerate shade.

    Also just arrived rootballed Holly - Ilex aquifolium 100-125cm tall!

  • Patio Fruit trees

    Big flavour for small spaces

    There's nothing like picking fruit from your own tree - even in the smallest of spaces available - patio, balcony or small garden.

    We now have a selection of fruit trees in stock grown on 'dwarf' or 'patio' rootstock which controls their ultimate size.

    Apple varieties are grafted or budded on to M27 rootstock to achieve around only 6' or 1.8m high and still produce a good basketful of apples. Cherries are grafted on to Gisela 5 rootstocks and Pears onto Quince Eline.  Come and visit the nursery to see the selection, trees on other rootstocks are available as usual.

    Apples in stock include Charles Ross, Fiesta, Red Devil, Scrumptious and Winter Gem. We have dwarf cherries Celeste, Morello, Stardust and Stella; Pear Beth and Concorde; Peach Garden Lady and Terrace Amber. They are all £39.99 available in containers now.
