Lonicera nitida hedge plants have small, dark green foliage and a dense, bushy growth habit. The glossy foliage takes well to pruning, making Lonicera hedging ideal for formal situations. A very popular evergreen, Lonicera nitida, which is also known as Wilson's Honeysuckle, makes it into the best4hedging top 10.

Lonicera nitida hedging provides year-round interest with delicate, fragrant, creamy flowers appearing in spring, followed by bluish-purple berries in the autumn. The dark foliage is densely packed on the supple branches of Lonicera hedging, providing an attractive hedging screen.
This evergreen hedging is ideal for both shaded and sunny spots. A Shrubby Honeysuckle hedge is useful for its dense, lasting foliage and fast growth rate and makes a great privacy screen and noise muffler. Lonicera nitida hedge plants are suited to most soil types, except very wet or exposed sites. Lonicera hedging can be trimmed into a neat shape and suits a formal setting; however, it can also be left a little bushy for a more relaxed garden style.
Consider growing Lonicera nitida hedging with Golden Honeysuckle for an alternative colour combination, or grow alone for a classic Shrubby Honeysuckle hedge.
Lonicera hedging has a fast growth rate and will achieve about 40-60cm a year. A Shrubby Honeysuckle hedge looks at its best when maintained at a height of between 1m and 3m.
Although Lonicera nitida is considered to be a low maintenance shrub, we recommend trimming your Shrubby Honeysuckle hedge between two and three times a year to uphold a neat shape. Pruning should be carried out in the summer and autumn. Please view our Hedging Advice page for further information on caring for Lonicera nitida hedging.
For information on planting density specific to Lonicera nitida hedging, please see the product table. In the 'No. Per Metre' column, you will find our recommended plant density for each individual species and root type. Visit our advice section for further planting density advice.
Shrubby Honeysuckle hedge plants are available to purchase year-round as Cell Grown or Pot Grown plants, as well as Trough Grown Instant Hedging. In the dormant season (usually November - late April/early May), Lonicera nitida is available to buy as bare roots, which can be pre-ordered from mid-summer.
The core of our Lonicera nitida hedge plants are UK grown by horticultural professionals with years of nursery and growing know-how. On occasions, we find it necessary to source Lonicera nitida from carefully inspected growers based outside of Britain, where we are positive that the quality of the plants cannot be faulted. At best4hedging, we always do our utmost to make sure that your plants arrive in the freshest condition and that they are of the finest quality, whilst upholding our brilliant prices. By doing this, it allows you to buy Shrubby Honeysuckle hedge plants online with total confidence that the plants you receive will meet, and hopefully exceed your expectations.
*For some plants that are too heavy or too tall to be packed in cardboard boxes we use pallet deliveries. In these circumstances, we require a minimum order value of £200 (ex VAT) for free delivery, or you can make a contribution towards the delivery cost. Look out for the information on product pages which explains this further where applicable and if your order is for less than £200 (ex VAT) please call or email us to agree upon a delivery contribution. This requirement only applies to those plants where it is clearly indicated on the product page
Pallet deliveries are always undertaken on an 18-tonne vehicle (similar in size to a standard refuse vehicle). If for any reason you require a smaller vehicle please contact our sales team who can arrange this for you. There will be an additional surcharge applied for small vehicle deliveries
99% of our orders are dispatched within 3-7 working days of receipt and most the day after the order is placed. We can do “next day delivery” on many of our products for an additional £12 (incl VAT) but please call on 01257 494 491 before placing your order to check.
We can also deliver on a specified date to suit you. Please indicate the date you would like to receive delivery in the notes section of the checkout (or place your order by phone) and we’ll do our utmost to meet that date.
Occasional hiccups can occur (such as broken down vehicles) and although we are very experienced in logistics we cannot be held liable for costs incurred or inconvenience due to late deliveries - see terms and conditions for more information.
You will receive an email or telephone call confirming the dispatch of your order 24/48 hours before it arrives with you.
Exceptions to our quick turnaround timescale
Pre-orders - if you have placed an order that includes products on pre-order, then they will be dispatched to you as soon as they are available. If your order includes pre-order bare roots or root balls you will be notified once they are being dispatched (root balls from mid to late October and bare roots from early to mid-November).
Root balls - lifting root balls involves the use of complex, heavy machinery, this lifting is carried out twice a week in the root ball season so we do still have a prompt turnaround timescale but if your order has just missed one lifting, it will be a few days before we lift again. We are always happy to confirm when we can deliver to you before you order. The benefit of this method of supplying root balls is that they are always fresh and therefore have a higher success rate than root balls that are stored out of the soil.
Weather conditions can affect dispatch - bare root and root ball plants are not lifted if the ground is too cold (it damages the roots) and the delivery of all plants can be affected if the water supply is frozen (because we water all plants before packing). Extremely hot weather can also be challenging and occasionally we hold back orders for species that are particularly vulnerable. We ask our customers to be mindful of bank holidays when couriers are not active.
We'd like to stress that although there are exceptions, the vast majority of our orders are dispatched extremely quickly and we are proud of our logistics developed over many years of delivering plants to tens of thousands of customers.
We inspect plants carefully before dispatch but accept that very occasionally things may go wrong.
You can return your plants (within 14 days) for a refund or replacement (we’ll help with the process of returning). If your plants arrived damaged then returns are free of charge. However, we ask that you inform us as soon as possible. If you’d like to return your plants because of a change of plan or if we do not agree that the plants are significantly damaged (the loss of a few leaves in transit or a loose pot on arrival, for example, wouldn't be harmful to the plants), then we may ask you to pay the full or partial return costs if you still wanted to return them. We’re very reasonable and always aim for complete satisfaction as demonstrated by our amazing Feefo customer reviews which can be viewed here.
Should you wish to return any products that you have over-bought, no longer require or purchased in error you will incur both a return cost (different charges for pallets and Boxes) and the original cost of delivery incurred by Best4hedging. Please contact the Service team for charges and/or to organise a return. Plants will be subject to a quality control check from our Nursery upon return before any refund is authorised and processed.
Please note that in the case of damaged plants, if you have not notified us of a problem within 14 days of delivery, we consider you to have accepted the plants and Best4Hedging has no further liability for them should they fail.
