The Box hedge plant (Buxus Sempervirens) is the most popular species for luxury low hedging. This evergreen hedging plant is perfect for hedges from 50cm up to 1.5m and is ideal for topiary. Box hedging plants have very small, dark green leaves so they're easy to clip into a formal, neat shape and because Box plants are slow growing, you don't have to clip too often - once a year is adequate - or twice if you're really neat! Box hedge plants are surprisingly tough, standing up to almost all soil types, shade and drought, these bushy hedging plants lend themselves to edging pathways, formal hedges and decorative knotted hedge gardens. Available in packs of 25 or 50 bare roots and grows 10-20cm per year.
Bare Root hedging plants are a great, cost-effective way for you to achieve your hedging goals. They are grown in an open environment, exposed to natural conditions, which allows these plants to develop with no restrictions. When opting for this root type, you will receive well established plants with sturdy root systems as a result of their growing method. Given the way in which they are grown, bare rooted plants are available from November until May as this is the time of year when the plants are dormant and can be safely lifted from the field. This category mostly consists of native, deciduous hedging species which many of them flower and/or berry so they make great hedges for wildlife and provide seasonal interest.
