Prickly shrubs are a fantastic addition to any garden or space. Not only do they add texture, colour and depth to a garden, they also act as a shelter for wildlife and may be used as an intruder deterrent. Our range of prickly hedge plants offers a wide choice, including flowering hedges, hedging with berries and evergreen or deciduous varieties. Whether you need a year-round screen for privacy or a rambling rose for seasonal interest, you will find the perfect prickly hedge right here.
Prickly hedging can be planted beneath windows as an intruder deterrent or, taller varieties can be planted as intruder proof boundary hedging. View our full range of intruder proof hedging here. Prickly hedging may sound a little scary but it is perfectly safe when planted correctly (Obviously we wouldn't advise planting prickly hedging if you have small children!). Many of our prickly hedging species also offer wonderful flowers, berries and autumn colour, making them of ornamental value as well as practical. At best4hedging we're not on the fence about hedging! Hedges beat fences every time in our opinion and prickly hedging is a great boundary solution.
