We sell our hedging plants in a variety of root types including Bare Root Hedging Plants, these are the most cost-effective way to establish a new hedge. Bare root plants are field grown and despatched fresh from their growing fields with the soil shaken off and ready for immediate planting. The season for these hedging plants runs from November until April when they are dormant.
Pot Grown Hedging Plants are delivered to you in the pots they have been grown in, this means they do not suffer any root disturbance or shock when planted meaning they can be planted all year round and achieve 100% success (provided of course they are well watered if you plant in Summer). We stock a very wide range of sizes in our pot grown hedging range from small starter plants in 9cm pots that are very cost effective, right through to much larger plants to create a more instant effect.
Root Ball Hedging Plants are grown in the soil in our fields for several years at a very wide spacing. During this time our skilled staff and specialist nursery machinery ensures they are regularly trimmed, watered and fed to produce top quality, mature, bushy hedging plants that give a big impact at moderate cost. Root Ball hedging plants are lifted by our own specialist machinery on the day of despatch with the immediate soil and root system which is wrapped in hessian mesh for protection. Root Ball Hedging Plants are available during the dormant Winter season from October until early May.
Instant Hedging plants are the fastest route to an established hedge in your garden, they have been grown here on our nursery for several years with regular trimming, irrigation and feeding – overseen by our expert team of horticulturalists. All our instant hedging products are sold in 1 metre lengths to make your calculations easier. We offer a wide selection of sizes from small trough hedges of slow growing species such as Common Box in heights of 30/40cm through to much larger instant hedges up to 200cm to give immediate eye-level privacy.
We also stock a first-class selection of Mixed Native Hedging, we offer a wide selection of mixes to suit different requirements and many of these are available in a range of sizes. Our Special Mix hedgerow was awarded the Gardening Which best buy being the most species rich mix tested, excellent quality plants and competitively priced.
If you find our huge selection of hedging plants a little overwhelming or you aren’t sure which species is best for your situation – we have a Choosing The Right Hedge page that you may find useful. Here you can browse hedging plant species that are suitable for a whole range of growing conditions, soil types and interesting features such as prickly security hedging or flowering hedging. By using this page, you can make an informed choice. If you still aren’t sure or need some extra advice, please do call our expert sales team.
Many of our customers are new to hedge planting and seek a little extra guidance regarding the correct soil preparation and planting. To this end we have an excellent How To Plant A Hedge page with detailed yet straightforward instructions on getting the best from your new hedge. You are very welcome to download a copy for reference, all customers ordering from us will receive a copy by email and we always send a printed copy of this cultural guidance in with your plants, so you have it handy.
Although most of our orders come directly from this website these days, we love talking to our customers! Unlike so many ‘nurseries’ these days that are little more than online ‘shop fronts’ with no growing experience, buying in stock to satisfy orders after they are placed – all our expert sales team have worked outside on the nursery with the plants here in Tenterden before ‘graduating’ to the office. This means you get to talk to real hedging experts who can answer your questions (And if they can’t answer your question there and then, they will find out and get back to you).
You can give our hedging plant sales team a call on 01580 765600, they can help with all hedging related questions you may have as well as offering tailored, discounted quotes for larger quantities of hedging plants over £1000.

If (like most customers) you choose to order online, you can be reassured that our whole website is secure (you will see the green padlock in the browser bar), we also have an extended validation SSL certificate to give you the highest level of security (Hopes Grove Nurseries in green in the browser before the URL) and all online transactions are processed through the secure Sagepay gateway (We do not store your payment details).
