• Western Red Cedar

    Thuja plicata hedging

    From £3.19

    Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata) is an ideal conifer hedging plant and will provide a dense, evergreen, conifer hedge.

    Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata 'Atrovirens') has distinctive glossy leaves that are mid to dark green and also unknowingly, they are aromatic when crushed with a scent similar to pineapple.

    A slower growing confier hedging plant compared to Leylandii, Western Red Cedar makes an ideal hedging plant if you are looking for privacy as it makes a dense hedge and a great windbreak. It is also a great absorber of air pollution so it is ideal to plant in urban gardens or areas that suffer from air pollution.

    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.
