Common Laurel - Prunus laurocerasus is a well known large evergreen shrub, mid green glossy leaves, easy to grow and extensively planted as an effective screen or hedge.
Ligustrum vulgare is a classic plant ideal for formal or native hedge planting schemes, with dark glossy semi-evergreen foliage. Easy to grow particularly over chalky soils.
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.
Symphoricarpus albus is a thicket forming dense shrub with arching shoots bearing small spherical white fruits like marbles in Autumn and into the winter. Always attracts attention.
£7.50 - £82.50
