Instant Hedging Plants & Shrubs

Best4hedging are proud to offer an exclusive range of ready to plant instant hedges in our most popular hedging species

Our instant hedging units are mostly grown in one-metre troughs and have been regularly clipped to shape whilst they've matured. Our instant hedges can be planted year round and provide a high impact straight away. As these plants have already been grown together and pruned to shape, they create a ready hedge, with the desired appearance of an established hedge that can take 2-5 years to develop in the garden. Not only have the plants of our instant hedging knitted together, but the root systems have also established to form a strong foundation, resulting in a high success rate once properly planted.

In comparison with pot grown plants or root balls of the same height, our instant hedging plants are more mature as they have been regularly pruned to create a uniform height and width for a show garden standard result.

The cost of instant hedges

The cost of our quality instant hedging reflects the skill and time it takes to create such mature hedges, however, if our instant hedging units are too expensive for your budget you should consider our root ball hedging plants. Our rootball plants are mature, bushy plants but they have not been regularly pruned to create that ready hedge look. They will still provide a good impact but take longer to develop the instant hedge effect. You can view our full range of root ball hedge plants here. You could also consider our tall pot grown hedge plants. Again, these will not have the same instant hedging look but can still add good height and bushiness to your garden.

How to plant instant hedging

Our instant hedging troughs are 1m in length and require two fit people to lift. We advise preparing your planting hole in advance and sprinkling Rootgrow into the trench. Once your instant hedging arrives, simply lift it out of the trough or bag and place into your planting hole. Backfill and water as normal. You can find more information on planting instant hedging here.
