Much like our pleached trees, the best time of year to plant a hedge is when plants are in their dormant state – in most cases late October to late April. Planting in these months is preferable because little or no watering is required and very little maintenance is necessary. In addition, plants have time to settle in and establish themselves in their new surroundings and develop healthy new roots, all before temperatures rise and the plants start growing again. Each season we prepare for the inevitable rush at this time of year with fresh stock available and delivered throughout these months.
Potted stock is available throughout the year and in some cases these may be preferable over rootball plants when available. Potted plants have the advantage of being available in the spring and summer months when deciduous species like Beech and Hornbeam for example cannot be lifted. For those time sensitive projects in spring and summer, potted stock is an ideal choice.
If an instant hedge is what you are after then our finished, cube shaped plants and instant hedge elements are the answer. To ensure we continue to offer the very best quality instant hedge plants, we work closely with partner nurseries and nurserymen across Europe, to bring our customers the very best plants on offer.
Due to logistics and the cost of delivery we are unable to supply less than 20 Metres of hedging, unless combined with other plants into a larger order.
Delivery cost is dependent on:
- The order quantity
- size: shorter hedges can be easier to transport than very tall plants which may be reflected in the price
- If you want us to plant them
- Accessibility of the site
- If any need sourcing
- The seasonal ability to lift or plant specific species.
We offer a personal shopping experience, so please contact us to discuss your individual requirements and delivery timescales.
We don’t have a customer service or sales team, when you contact us you will speak to a hedging expert, who can offer practical advice, in addition to pricing inc vat or ex vat, delivery cost, order quantity and discuss pre-order for seasonally available trees.
