From £19.99


Pittosporum Tom Thumb is an evergreen shrub that has distinctive rounded shape and attractive leaves that will give year round foliage. A popular species that can be used for hedging, topiary or grown into a little tree which, in the right position, can reach to 25ft or more if required.

Tom Thumb Pittosprorum is an evergreen shrub with small, wavy, dark purple leaves and striking, dark grey or black young stems. Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Tom Thumb' is an unusual variety of Pittosporum; its deep purple hued leaves are offset with the contrasting new growth of light green leaves creating a visually striking and colourful appearance for which this shrub is popular.

It is very dense in habit and is slow-growing so ideal for low growing hedging or a compact yet colourful shrub.

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.
