Hedges are essential wildlife corridors, connecting woodland and other important habitats. They help hedgehogs and dormice stay on the move and are a vital food source for insects, birds and other mammals. Hedge laying can also create a natural screen to block unattractive views, establish privacy and form a shelter from the wind or help reduce noise levels.

Purchase size and growth:
These trees are cell-grown saplings, ranging from approximately 15cm-60cm in height. Cell grown trees can be planted all year round in most situations as long as they are given the correct care. Please be aware that depending on the time of year you receive your saplings (particularly early spring) they may not look very perky upon arrival, but once they have been planted they should pick up quickly.
UK & Ireland Sourced and Grown (UKISG):
Every sapling we provide is UK and Ireland Sourced and Grown to minimise the risk of importing and spreading tree pests and diseases. Seeds are collected and stored in the UK and Ireland, and they are all coded and batched so that we can track each individual tree.
More information about the trees in this mix is available in our A-Z guide to British trees.
Please note spirals and canes are not included within these packs. Purchase spirals and canes separately in our accessories section.
