Holly Hedging

Holly hedging (Ilex aquifolium) is also known as Common Holly or English Holly and is the only prickly evergreen plant suitable for hedging that is native to this country and has been cultivated since ancient times.  Its highly attractive dark green prickly leaves and its vibrant red berries are synonymous with Christmas wreaths and festive decorations and is found throughout the wild in much of the UK.  Wild birds favour its branches as nesting sites and its red berries as a food supply during the colder months.  Scroll down for more information on Holly hedges and the plants that we have available.
