Our hedging growth rate department allows you to select hedge plants based on their growth rate. Our hedge plants vary from slow, medium, fast and very fast growing. There are benefits to all growth rates; slow growing hedges are low maintenance and easy to maintain, whilst fast growing hedges reach their final height size more quickly.
It is very important to make sure you choose the right hedge for your garden or planting scheme. If you are an active gardener, happy to spend a few days a year pruning your hedge then our range of very fast or fast growing hedging is great. If you only require a short garden hedge to use as a border for your veg patch, you would be better choosing an average or slow growing hedge. By taking hedge growth rate into consideration, you will be able to decide which species is best suited to your gardening needs.
Many gardeners choose fast growing hedging as it is a cost effective method. You can purchase smaller plants than you require, knowing that your hedge will soon reach your desired height. Many of our customers want to plant a garden hedge to add structure and definition but don't want to worry about pruning. Slow growing hedging is ideal as it requires minimal pruning, just a light trim once or twice a year, depending on your desired aesthetic.
