  • Pyracantha - Red

    Red Firethorn hedging

    From £10.00

    Red Pyracantha (Pyracantha Firethorn 'Red Column') is a beautiful and colourful hedge which will provide security to your garden due to its thorny stems, as well as being a great source of food for birds.

    Pyracantha Red (Pyracantha Firethorn 'Red Column') is a great hedging plant if you are looking to add some privacy and security to your garden. Its dense growing habit along with the many thorns also makes it ideal for birds to nest and the bright red berries that appear in the autumn are a great source of food. It is not only the birds that love this hedging plant, this evergreen shrub is smothered in fragrant, white flowers which are a favourite with bees.

    It is a tough, hardy plant which grows quite quickly (approx 50cm p.a.) and should be pruned after flowering to expose the spent flowers, which will become berries, to sunshine. We also have Orange and Yellow varieties of Pyracantha, as well as an additional variety which we have available in the form of a living screen

    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.
