We can only sell bare-rooted plants when they are dormant. Orders for bare-rooted plants will be sent when the plants are dormant again (depending on the weather this is normally in November). We still have a wide range of pot grown and cell grown plants available for despatch or collection.

We don't charge your credit card for goods until they are about to be despatched. Orders received before October will be charged at this season's prices. We process orders on a first come, first served basis so to get your plants as early as possible please place your order now.


Please enter length of hedge you require below. The number of plants and price for these will then be shown on the right hand side.
