Holly Hedging Plants

Ilex aquifolium, Common Holly Hedge

The common holly produces a solid, prickly impenetrable hedge with glossy, dark green foliage with red berries providing food for wildlife in winter.  A dark green Holly hedge will make an attractive backdrop for decorative plants within the garden. Holly hedges can be trimmed into fantastic formal shapes. Holly can be cut back hard and still regenerate from old wood. Although Holly is slower growing than other popular hedging species, it can still establish as a hedge in a reasonable timescale. An excellent choice for a solid evergreen security hedge requiring low maintenance.

Rootballed plants are available in bigger sizes from October through to April, weather dependent. These plants are grown in bigger sizes going up to 3 metres in height. Rootballed plants are lifted during the plants dormant period. This reduces the amount of stress imposed on the plants and increases the chances of successful re-establishment. Plants are also lifted to order to minimise the time they are stored out of the ground before replanting. Although rootball plants may seem expensive many of these plants will be between 6-15 years old and will have been root pruned and trimmed many times before they are lifted. Rootball plants tend to be bushier than pot grown plants as they have been out in the field and more exposed to the elements. They are lifted from the field using specialist machinery and the soil rootball is hessian wrapped to protect it. This protective wrapping should be left on at planting and will naturally bio degrade.
