Hedging Plants
Hedging Plants can form boundaries, provide privacy and protect flower & shrub beds.
They will need pruning to maintain their shape and to control their size.


Plants for a Traditional Hedges
Hornbeam (Carpinus) Hawthorn (Crataegus) Beech - Copper (Fagus)
Beech - Green (Fagus) Privet (Ligustrum) Green/Gold Laurel (Prunus)

Flowering Hedges
Berberis Hawthorn (Crataegus) Escallonia
Honeysuckle (Lonicera) Potentilla Pyracantha (Firethorn)
Rose Spirea  

Conifer Hedge
Chamaecyparis "Allummii" Leylandii - green Leyandii - "Castlewellan Gold"
Cupressus Macrocarpa Pinus Nigra Pinus Sylvestris
Taxus Baccata Thuja Plicata  
Please be carefull with Leylandii hedging as they can grow so fast they get out of control,
leading to neighbour disputes and/or the need for a tree surgeon to take them down
Personally I would avoid them in all but the biggest gardens.

Plants for a Low Growing Hedge
B. Thunbergee Atropurpurea "Nana" Box Lavender
Prunus "Crimson Dwarf" Rosemary Santolina (Lavender Cotton"
