Practical Instant Hedge™
Using our 20 years of experience in developing, maintaining and planting instant hedging, we are now producing our own Practical Instant Hedge™ which is mature hedge grown in 1m troughs here at our nursery in Iver, Buckinghamshire. The production method ensures that this mature hedge is easy to handle with no transplant shock and that it can be planted all year round.
We have an expert grower overseeing production and are able to offer a premium mature hedging product, grown with top quality plants, suitable for both commercial and domestic situations. Our Practical Instant Hedging range currently consists of Native Mix, Griselinia, Yew, Elaeagnus, Portuguese Laurel, Common Laurel, Holm Oak, Hawthorn, Beech, Hornbeam, Holly and Box with more species to follow.
