Hedging plants by variety
Browse our wide range of hedging plants by variety from aucuba, bamboo, beech and berberis hedging to photinia, privet, pyracantha, rhododendrons and everything else in between. Some of these varieties are evergreen, retaining their leaves all year round, whilst others are deciduous, delivering an autumnal seasonal display as the leaves fall before producing a fresh batch of leaves again in spring. Different varieties offer varying ornamental features, spanning colourful or spotted foliage, vibrant bark colours, showy flowers, glossy berries, and more. Hedging plants are the cornerstone of any garden, creating an attractive boundary that has a big impact on privacy and enjoyment in your outdoor space. Hedges provide a visibility screen and reduce noise pollution, all whilst providing a home and shelter for wildlife and nesting birds. Careful planning and preparation is needed when establishing a hedge, starting with which types of plants you choose. Evergreens such as cherry laurel provide a solid year-round block of foliage colour with alternatives such as photinia red robin delivering striking red young growth for variety and interest. The spiny branches of berberis make them an effective impenetrable, intruder proof hedge; whilst yew can be tightly clipped to give a more formal appearance with the added bonus of fleshy red berries from late summer.
