“You only want to plant a hedge once so buy the best and invest in quality English grown plants”
Western red cedar makes a good alternative to the ubiquitous ‘Leylandlii’ with darker green and thicker foliage. The form we grow 'Atrovirens' has attractive glossy green thick foliage, ideally suited to clipping to make a fast growing attractive tall screen or hedge
Our Western red cedar hedge plants are English grown from genuine English origin stock. They are established and fully graded transplants, not cheaper or inferior seedling stock. The difference in quality is clear. Our Western red cedar transplants have been grown for 2 years, producing a more fibrous root system enabling them to establish more easily with a higher rate of success. Our Western red cedar transplants are also more heavily branched giving you a more established looking hedge.
Cheaper alternatives are often not English grown, but imported from continental Europe. As growers with over 40 years of growing experience we are happy to pass on our knowledge and advice. Don’t compromise on quality. When you want the best choose quality English grown, English origin Western red cedar from Botanica.
