Instant Hedges is known nationwide for our outstanding instant hedges in trough form or individual plants grown specifically to form an instant hedge when planted. However a well kept secret up to now is we stock the widest range of PLEACHED TREES in the UK.
Our extensive portfolio of stock allows us to cater for projects where the budget is more restrictive requiring the use of younger 12-14cm girth pleached trees to grown on and fill out in the coming season upto mature 30-35cm pleached trees with full coverage across the trellis for the perfect instant screen.
The standard pleached tree size is 150x150cm frame on a 180-200cm clear stem. We have these in abundance but our range is not limited to these sizes. We have frame sizes upto 180cm tall or 180cm wide depending on the specific need. We also have trained nursery men who can adapt the existing framework or stem height to customise the pleached tree for your specific project. The species we have available include Prunus laurocerasus, Photinia, Quercus Ilex, Ilex, Pyrus Chanticleer and Carpinus.
Low pleaches are proving equally as popular as the standard counterparts so our stock reflects this. We have a variety of low pleaches with a clear stem of 100cm or 150cm. The species we have available include Prunus laurocerasus, Photinia, Ilex, Fagus and Liquidambar.
Sourcing plants for projects can be more challenging during the summer months when rootballed trees are not an option but we have all of these pleached trees in containers on our nursery available for your project NOW.
As the season changes we will soon be moving into rootball season. The cold weather means the plants will become dormant for the winter and can be moved directly from the field to planting site. When the plants are dormant they can be moved and planted with no stress at all to the plants and very low initial watering requirements. This results in easier initial maintenance of the hedge and economic benefits too. We have an extensive list of root ball hedges, trees and established shrubs available for the root ball season. Please contact us in the office to discuss any requirements.
Instant Hedges has been based on our main container nursery in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, for 12 years. We continue to grow and expand not only our container production side of the nursery but also our field grown production. Our central UK location allows us to deliver to the whole of the UK.
Instant Hedges business and reputation has grown over the years but our commitment to offering complete end to end service from consultancy through sourcing, supply and distribution to planting and maintenance has remained. Managing Director Nick Angel concludes: “Our reputation has been built on the expertise of our personnel, our appreciation of customer expectation, the quality and service and the value-for-money we are able to deliver on each and every project.”
