Hedges for Partial Shade – Customers often ask us for advice on suitable hedging plants for partially shaded parts of the garden, areas that receive sun for part of the day but miss out on its full intensity all day.
Some plants will grow in conditions of both full sun and some shade while others benefit from missing out on direct sunlight all day. The amount of sun that the site for your new hedge receives is an important consideration when choosing the right hedge species.
Hedges for partial shade may need a little extra help with watering while they get established, especially if the shade is being cast by much larger trees and shrubs, even if they are some distance away from the area being planted. It is likely they will have large and extensive root systems and so will still compete for water with your new hedge. Our soaker hose can be an easy way of achieving an effective watering solution.
Adding rootgrow when planting is also a great way to get your new hedge off to a good start and is especially useful less than ideal planting conditions.
The amount of sun that your garden recieves is an important consideration when selecting hedging plants. We have a wide assortment of hedge species in all shapes and sizes, perfectly suited to partial shade.
