Trees and Plants > Hedge Plants


The plants that are listed below are trees and shrubs that respond better to clipping into hedges than others. These tough hedging plants are great used for protection, privacy screens and aesthetic value. A-Z list below Size and Growth If you wish to create a hedge which is really dense and bushy from the ground upwards it is advisable to plant young, small plants. Many people look at the small seedlings in tubes and imagine it will be years before they will achieve anything which looks like a 'hedge' however, if larger plants are chosen the result can often be that the hedge is rather gappy at the base. Also larger plants are more expensive and are more likely to fail than small ones. Position All plants listed will grow in a sunny or partially shady position with any with special requirements being stated on the label. Soil Unless otherwise stated the plants listed will all grow in any reasonable well-drained soil. Planting and Pruning requirements When planting and caring for a new hedge it is very important to follow the pruning and planting instructions that will come with the plants. Some people hesitate to cut their hedging plants back, or forget to do it frequently enough and with many varieties this will result in a hedge which is not dense at the base.
