As the grower, we can offer wholesale pricing on a vast range of bare root hedging plants. Please scroll down on this page to see all the species we grow which are suitable to be used as hedging and they are sorted approximately into popularity rather than alphabetically (but you can use the Sort by button to resort however you wish).
We lead with “mixed native bare root hedging” also known as country hedging or farm hedging and these packs will grow into farm hedgerows. Our packs are a mixture of species which are cheaper to buy in a pack than they are as individual plants. Or you can choose your own mixture from the selection below or add some additional species to a mixed native pack making it a “species-rich hedge” which will have additional benefits for wildlife (generally the more species in a hedge, the more wildlife it will support) - see our blog on wildlife friendly hedging. We sell vast quantities of these packs to farmers and landowners.
If you are planting a boundary where animals will be kept, please use the filter on the left hand side to only include those species that are non-toxic.
If you are claiming Countryside Stewardship Scheme grants the plants must be 2 year old transplants (1+1's) and you need to plant 6 per metre with a maximum of 70% being any one species (that would normally be hawthorn or blackthorn).
We have another blog called “Things you might not know about farm hedges” which is a collection of miscellaneous information that we found interesting and think you might too.
It is a commonly stated fact, though possibly exaggerated in some parts of the country, that the UK has lost 50% of its hedgerows in the last 50 years, and with the drive in all parts of the UK to do more towards achieving our net zero goals, planting a hedge and then maintaining it in good condition is a relatively easy and cost-effective way to do your bit and with recently improved ELMS farm grants, there is now a decent financial incentive to do so.
