    English (Taxus baccata) is often referred to as the King Of Hedges as it is the classic British conifer hedge. A lovely evergreen hedging plant that will provide colour, privacy and windbreak. 

    English Yew (Taxus baccata) is a classic British conifer hedge plant that created an attractive screen that looks striking when trimmed into formal shapes or organic curves. Not only will it look strong and appealing in your garden, the birds will love it to as it produces juciy red berries in autumn. Due to its dense growing habit, it is also a great source of shelter for them too. This hedging plant is easy to maintain whilst still being relatively fast growing. It is commonly known for its dense needle-like foliage. 

    This hedging plant works equally as well planted for aesthetic purposes in a garden, or used for landscape hedging, due to the traditional appearance and tough natur.

    Fun Fact

    Yew is also used in topiary which makes for an interesting feature in your garden. This is down to its fine, densely needled habit and provides your outdoor space with an elegant feel.

    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.
