Fast growing plants
Shop our selection of the best fast growing plants, perfect if you’re looking to quickly create a hedge or screen, clothe a wall, develop a fruit garden or orchid in short order or are simply want a newly planted garden to flourish rapidly. This section is split by type of plant – you can browse by fast growing bamboo, climbing plants, conifers, fruit bushes, fruit trees, roses, shrubs and trees using the sub-categories below. These are ideal for the impatient gardener looking for an area to look good in a hurry. These vigorous growers tend to flower sooner as well, creating an impact much quicker than their slower growing counterparts. Just be mindful of their eventual height and spread and the pruning or trimming that will be required once they have reached the desired height. The flipside to fast-growing plants being quick to establish and add impact is that they’ll need to be kept in check more regularly once they reach your preferred height. Most of our fast-growing plants are supplied in pots and can be planted at any time of the year, providing the ground is not frozen or waterlogged and it's not excessively windy. Some – where indicated – are supplied bare root, suitable for planting during the dormancy period between mid-October and the end of March.
