Taxus Baccata is a familiar sight in churchyards and formal hedges across the country. Yew makes one of the best formal evergreen hedging subjects, and is not as slow growing as many people think. Easy to look after with little pruning needed.
Shrubby Honeysuckle - Lonicera nitida Fertilis makes an excellent dense and low growing evergreen hedge with box like foliage. Easy to grow in a wide range of situations and popular for dwarf formal hedges. The plant 'Fertils' we grow performs better as a hedge than the old form of Lonicera nitida.
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
Makes a superb evergreen hedge of easy and fast growing habit, ideal for windy or exposed positions. Lovely two-toned foliage effect in spring when striking new silvery leaves contrast with the deep green of the old; perfumed white flowers in late summer.
Ilex aquifolium produces many, white, fragrant, winter to early spring flowers, followed by ornamental blue-black fruit, which attract birds. Mature plants reach up to 3m. Makes a good evergreen hedge.
Griselinia Littoralis is an excellent evergreen subject, which can be used to good effect as an individual specimen or makes an excellent evergreen hedge. The attractive foliage is bright apple green that always looks smart and effective even when there is snow and ice on the ground. Griselinia littoralis is excellent choice for maritime exposure.
