We specialise in instant hedging in lots of varieties, from dense formal varieties that can be clipped closely, to fast growing informal varieties that are great for screening. Most of the following hedging plants are available all year round, but sometimes the biggest plants are only available in the winter months (Nov-March) from our fields.

To buy hedging, or to check availability and sizes, please call 01777 702422 or email Chris and the team at enquiries@greenmiletrees.co.uk
