    Ilex aquifolium hedging

    From £3.70

    English Holly (Ilex aquifolium) is a hedging classic and a beautiful and versatile evergreen hedging plant. English Holly will provide your garden with colour, protection and wildlife interest. It's a great all rounder!

    Holly (Ilex aquifolium) has many features that makes this hedging plant a classic and timeless. Holly leaves stay glossy and green all year round with it being evergreen and the classic red berries are a real treat for birds who will sure to be seen in your gardens if Holly is planted. Holly is also a very popular choice to include in a native mixed hedge (it is one of the few native evergreens) to provide some winter colour and protection for wildlife.

    Not only is this a very low maintenance hedging plant, it will provide security to your garden with its very well known prickly leaves. Its dense habit makes it a great windbreak and it is also a great absorber of air pollution so it is very beneficial for the environment.

    1. Select Root Type

    Bare Root 

    Bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the planting season but they can be pre-ordered in summer to guarantee your stock. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options and the cheapest way to plant a hedge.

    Root Ball 

    Root ball plants are also seasonal stock as they can only be lifted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). These plants are scooped out of the ground like an ice-cream using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks.  They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly. Root ball hedging plants give an instant effect and are a cheaper alternative to instant trough grown hedging. 

    Pot Grown 

    Pot grown plants can be planted year round and they are our mose convenient option of hedging plants. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements. From small 2L shrubs to large 15L extra tall hedging, there will be a pot grown plant for any garden type. 

    Instant Hedging 

    Our Instant Hedging is grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season to create a dramatic, instant hedge effect. If you are looking for a quick fix or an instant impact, Instant Trough Grown hedging is the solution for you.
