What We Offer
As growers, we specialise in the production of all varieties and sizes of hedging plants, with a particular focus on the larger sizes of hedging. We also grow and supply a range of trees, shrubs, topiary and pleached hedging.
Our main range of hedging suitable for larger hedges includes varieties such as Laurel, Leylandii, Castlewellan Gold, Thuja, Yew, Privet, Beech, Hornbeam, Holly, Photinia ‘Red Robin’ and Portuguese Laurel and other Native Hedging.
If there are particular plants that you require, please telephone us on 01252 714552 or email us on [email protected] as we may have a new crop coming that is not visible on our website yet or we may be able to source the plants from elsewhere for you.
Although we only grow and supply hedging we can usually put local customers in contact with contractors who will plant their trees for them if required.
Our Nursery and Production
The majority of our production is based on container grown plants, however we also have a field grown nursery for plants that are either transplanted into containers or are sold as bare root or root balled plants in season. Plants are either sold individually or increasingly in the format of instant hedge troughs.
Our nursery production is carried out to the very highest standard of which we are incredibly proud and we believe that our plants are as good as you will find anywhere and represent extremely good value for money.
All of our hedging plants are clipped throughout the year to encourage bushy growth to ensure that the final product is a bushy plant that will start to form a hedge immediately after planting. In field plants are trimmed mechanically using a mechanical trimmer that is the only one of its kind in the UK.
