//Hedging Plants

Hedging is a perfect way to bring structure and background colour to a garden, whilst creating a barrier, and in most cases privacy from neighbours. We grow many thousands of hedging plants here on our outside beds each year, and so can supply a hedge for the smallest of gardens or provide coverage across acres of land. Our hedging is hardy, and able to withstand salt-laden winds, a common requirement for gardens down here in Cornwall, near the coast.

The hedging we grow is based on our own experience of what makes a truly great hedge (good growth habit, disease resistance, aesthetically pleasing etc) and very importantly, what can withstand the harshest of weather conditions, particularly the winds, most often posing the greatest challenge to gardens both inland and especially on our Cornish coastline – and the coastline around the UK.

It displays glossy green leaves, which are silvery-white on the undersides, creating a lovely two-tone effect. Inconspicuous daisy-like flowers bloom on panicles in early summer.

  • Corokia Geenty's Ghost foliageCorokia Geenty's Ghost hedging plant
    Available in a 4 litre pot. Corokia x virgata Geenty's Ghost is a tough evergreen shrub from New Zealand with silvery grey foliage and small yellow flowers in the spring, which are followed by red-orange berries. It is a great one for coastal planting, withstanding salt-laden winds well, and also makes a cracking hedge in locations prone to wind. Its compact habit means it can be trimmed to a neat  shape, naturally only reaching around 1-2m high and around 1m wide - therefore also making it a great pick for smaller gardens. It thrives in a well drained soil in a sunny, or partially shady position. Feeding with a decent fertiliser during the growing season will encourage the nice dense growth required of the 'perfect hedge'!

  • Ilex crenata Green Hedge hedging plant

    Ilex crenata Green Hedge

    £7.95£25.00
    Ilex crenata Green Hedge is the perfect alternative to Buxus (Box hedging) - looking almost identical to the old favourite, but without falling victim to disease problems such as box blight. Its common name is Japanese Holly, but it doesn't have prickly leaves, it has small dark green (probably slightly darker than Buxus) leaves that help form a neat dense hedge. Another advantage over Buxus is its more robust nature - and ability to grow beyond the common low Box hedge if desired - up to around 1.5m, due to its slightly more vigorous growth habit. A great evergreen option - and also perfect for topiary. Plant in a well drained soil in a sun/part shade position. A per plant discount is available for bulk purchases of Ilex crenata Green Hedge hedging plants. This discount will be applied in your basket if applicable (begins at 10+ plants).

    £9.50
    Available in a 5 litre pot. Pinus radiata, also known as the Monterey Pine, is a vigorous evergreen conifer that can grow up to 5ft a year in the right conditions. It has dense dark green needles, that fair extremely well in a coastal position, where salt-laden winds are common. They enjoy plenty of daylight and sunshine, in a well drained soil, and planted in multiples can form a quick and robust screen or hedge that can be trimmed to a desired height/shape.
  • elaeagnus x ebbingei compacta
    Available in a 2 litre pot. Elaeagnus ebbingei Compacta forms a neater, more compact hedge than its very close relative Elaeagnus ebbingei, and is ideal for hedges up to 2m/6ft. It grows around 45 cm/18inches a year, looks great on Cornish walls and is good for smaller gardens. Besides forming a more compact hedge, many of its other characteristics, including its nitrogen fixing capabilities, are in line with its relative Elaeagnus x ebbingei. It is an evergreen, hardy, salt-wind tolerant hedging plant that will grow very close to the sea. It will grow well in any well drained soil, even poor, dry soils, as it is particularly drought tolerant, and can be positioned in anything from full sun to heavy shade.

  • pseudosasa-japonica

    Pseudosasa japonica

    £29.95£45.00
    Available in large 10 litre and 20 litre pots. This tough, hardy, evergreen Bamboo is one of the best varieties for hedging and screening, as it forms the thickest of olive green canes, 4-6m/13-20ft tall – so great for traffic noise reduction and also one of the best-selling plants for screening noisy neighbours! It is also one of the only bamboos suitable for coastal and windy areas because it holds onto its large jungly looking leaves. It is very fast growing, with new shoots emerging from the base each summer, and superseding the previous year’s growth by around 1-1.5m/3.3-4.9ft. It spreads to form a clump, and can be pruned by either slicing off wayward shoots annually with a spade, or growing it alongside a lawn to stop it spreading. Alternatively, use a bamboo barrier when planting - as bamboos are shallow rooting this is fairly easy.
    A per plant discount is available for bulk purchases of Pseudosasa japonica hedging plants. This discount will be applied in your basket if applicable (begins at 10+ plants).

  • Griselinia Variegata leaves close upGriselinia Variegata plants
    Available in a 5 litre pot. A slower growing Griselinia, this attractive variety grows about 30cm / 1ft a year, if fed with a very good slow release fertiliser like Trevena Cross Fertiliser, making it very suitable for smaller sized hedges. It's attractive variegation is displayed on leaves that tend to be rounder in shape than on it's close relative Griselinia Green Jewel. Like the standard Griselinia, it will withstand salt laden winds but will only tolerate a seafront position if located in a sheltered estuary or inlet, like St Mawes or Falmouth in Cornwall. In exposed locations, Griselinia would need to be positioned several hundred feet away from the sea or for extremely exposed coastal sites like Land’s End, and Lizard Point in Cornwall, we would recommend an alternative like the tougher Elaeagnus or Olearia traversii. A per plant discount is available for bulk purchases of Griselinia Variegata hedging plants. This discount will be applied in your basket if applicable (begins at 10+ plants).
  • Olearia Laxifolia

    Olearia Laxifolia

    £9.95£25.00
    Available in a 5 or 10 litre pot. Olearia virgata Laxifolia has become a firm favourite with us here at Trevena Cross Nurseries and is planted on our own land as screening. Perhaps not as well known or as well understood as some other hedging types, we are keen to promote its merits as a fantastic grower! We have come across nothing so tough, or so quick to form a decent screen or hedge. Olearia traversii Compacta is another great coastal hedge we recommend. A per plant discount is available for bulk purchases of Olearia Laxifolia hedging plants. This discount will be applied in your basket if applicable (begins at 10+ plants). For 50 5 litre plants see our Olearia Laxifolia Pallet Deal, to benefit from UK wide FREE DELIVERY.
  • Sea of Griselinia Green JewelGriselinia Green Jewel hedging plant 5ltr

    Griselinia Green Jewel

    £10.95£25.00
    Available in a 5 litre or 10 litre pot.
    A more subtle variation in colour than Griselinia Variegata, Griselinia Green Jewel displays bright, glossy green leaves, splashed cream margins, and grey undertones across the leaf. The leaves tend to be slightly more pointed than the rounder leaf of Variegata too.
    Like the other Griselinia varieties, it tolerates a coastal position and salt laden winds very well, however it prefers more enclosed/sheltered estuaries. Very exposed locations would be better suited to the tougher Elaeagnus or Olearia hedging types.
    A per plant discount is available for bulk purchases of Griselinia Green Jewel hedging plants. This discount will be applied in your basket if applicable (begins at 10+ plants).
