Pleached Limes

Pleached Lime Trees

  • From £249.99 (ex VAT)


Another fantastic variety of pleached tree; pleached Limes (Tilia × europaea 'Pallida') boast heart shaped, green leaves that turn buttery yellow in autumn. The attractive foliage and fast growth rate of Lime makes it a great choice for pleached hedging.

You may have seen pleached trees referred to as hedging in the sky, hedges on stilts, stilt hedging or pleached hedging. Pleached trees consist of a tall clear stem, upon which a mature screen is grown by spacing out the branches into parellel lines. All of our pleached hedging is grown by specialist nurseries who are experts in the art of pleaching. Below, you will find some of our most popular specifications of Pleached Lime trees but if you can't find exactly what you're looking for, just give us a call on 01257 261 243.

The prices listed below include delivery costs providing that our articulated lorry can access the property. If a smaller delivery vehicle is required please call us for a bespoke delivery quote.

About Pleached trees

Clear stem = the bare stem or 'leg' that the pleached hedge is grown on

Head = the leafy hedge screen on top of the clear stem

Girth = the circumference of the stem measured from 1m above ground level

So, if Clear stem = 2m and Head = 1.8m x 1.2m then the total height will be 3.2m and total width 1.8m.

Delivery of pleached trees

Having supplied 100s of customers with quality pleached trees to UK gardens we are well versed in the logistics required for creating a bespoke delivery solution. Pleached Lime trees can take up to two weeks to be delivered and the prices listed below include delivery costs. All prices assume that we can access your property with an articulated lorry. If your property cannot take delivery from an articulated lorry we can still deliver to you, using a smaller vehicle, however this would incur a delivery supplement which differs depending on postcode and order quantity. Our experienced Sales and Service team will contact you directly to quote for this. We know it’s important  that your pleached trees are delivered when you expect them, so as well as discussing any access issues we will also organise delivery for a date that suits you.

These instant hedging units require a fair amount of help on your part once they arrive, we advise that the lighterr units require 2 able people to lift. The more mature, heavier units require several (4+) able bodied helpers or even better a forklift or similar moving equipment.

All pleached trees are delivered from October -April/May as root balls and can be pre-ordered year round. We can also source containerised pleached trees outside of these months, just call us for more information.

  • Orders £100 & over (ex. VAT) to mainland UK are delivered FREE* (Exceptions apply - see below for Scottish Highlands etc)
  • Orders under £100 (ex. VAT) to mainland UK £15
  • At an additional cost, we can deliver to Scottish Highlands & Islands, which we classify as including AB (Aberdeen) and DD (Dundee) postcodes, as well as Ireland, Channel Islands, Isle of Wight and Isle Man. The exact delivery cost is order specific and will need to be quoted by one of our team, so please contact us on 01257 261 243

*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 £250 (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 £250 (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

Delivery Timescales

99% of our orders are dispatched within 14 to 21 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 backorders 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.
