Instant Hedges

best4hedging’s instant hedge plants are mostly grown in one-metre troughs that are regularly clipped to shape as they grow and mature. Instant hedging features plants that are fairly mature and already knitted together forming a complete, ready-made hedge with an established look, which otherwise can take 2-5 years to develop. Our instant hedges also have the advantage of a firmly established root system providing a robust foundation which results in a high planting success rate. Instant hedges can be planted all year round and provide an immediate impact. Find out more here.

Instant Hedging Alternatives

Although the price of instant hedging is higher than conventional hedge plants, the cost of our quality reflects the skill and time it takes to develop these species. However, best4hedging also provides a variety of hedge plants that might be suitable for your budget, such as root ball hedging plants.

Root ball plants are mature and bushy, but they’re not as regularly pruned compared to instant hedging. However, they’ll still have an incredible impact, but it will take longer to develop into the immediate hedge effect.
