Fast Growing Hedges

Our fast growing evergreen hedges can help you to transform your outdoor space within a very short period of time. Perfect if you want to hide unwanted views or create a new boundary, these plants provide a quick and convenient landscaping solution.

Choose from a wide selection of options, including laurel, leylandii and thuja. The plants in this collection are easy to care for and can put on as much as two to three feet of new growth in a single season. So if you don’t want to wait around to see impressive results, these hedges could be exactly what you need.

Like all of our plants, they are professionally grown, nurtured, picked and packaged on our 30 acre site in Cheshire. This means you can be sure that your new hedging will be top quality. We also pride ourselves on our low prices, so getting the right quick growing hedge for your garden may cost less than you think if you shop with us.

Fast growing hedges to suit all gardens

Our evergreen fast growing hedges include green and golden leylandii. Green leylandii is a particularly fast growing conifer that forms a dense hedge. It can grow up to 30 metres if left unchecked, so it requires trimming once or twice a year. Golden leylandii features attractive sprays of yellow foliage, which is sometimes tinged bronze. This variety grows around 20 per cent slower than green leylandii, but it still benefits from regular trimming.  

Both of these varieties of leylandii look superb year-round and are a great choice for anyone looking for quick growing hedges for privacy. They are robust and can thrive in most conditions, but for best results, they should be planted in well-drained soil in full sun or part shade.

Laurels are also extremely popular, including cherry laurels. These vigorous, spreading evergreens have large, glossy, dark green leaves and they blossom with white flowers followed by red fruits. They’re easy to grow and quickly form dense walls of foliage, meaning they need regular pruning to maintain the desired shape and size. Portuguese laurels are another superb hedging plant. Giving a more formal look, they have dark red shoots that bear deep green leaves. They also produce white flowers, which are followed by small, dark purple fruits. Portuguese laurel is slower growing than cherry laurel and it is tougher, meaning it’s able to withstand exposed sites.

Check out our thuja varieties too. Thuja - cedar - are fast growing conifers that naturally grow in a conical shape and feature flat sprays of aromatic yellowish green leaves. Slower growing than leylandii, they are hardy and like most soil types, as long as the ground isn’t too wet. These plants are very easy to maintain and care for.

Perhaps you like the look of our elaeagnus hedging. These medium evergreen shrubs have simple grey green leaves and flower with tubular blooms in clusters, followed by a small fruit. They can grow up to three metres and perform best in fertile, well-drained soil.

Choose from a range of different sized plants and pots

Our fast growing hedges are available in a variety of different sizes. You can choose from small plants provided in petite 2.5 litre pots right up to much larger, more well established plants in huge 230 litre containers. So, whether you want an instant hedge or you’d prefer to start small, you’ll find something to suit.

Once you’ve chosen the plants you want, simply place your order. You can buy online, over the phone or directly from our nursery in Knutsford. The choice is yours.

    100% of 100

    These are awfully ugly left overs, if that isn't enough they were potted on from last years ugly left overs, not going to win miss laurel 2020. A bit boney in the leg and hungry in the leaf. That's the bad news.

    The good news is, they are cheap and will transform into a lovely laurel if planted and fed. A bit like the ugly duckling!  Quack on and grab a bargain.
