The best trees and hedges in the country
Nicholsons is proud to grow and offer some of the best hedging in the country. We sell evergreen hedges and deciduous hedges in all sizes, from bare root plants (30 to 60 cm high) to mature fully-formed hedges and screens (3m high). Our 20+ acres of nursery are put to good use growing hedging plants, among other species. For contact details and opening hours see here.
Bare Root Hedging Plants
Our bare root hedging is available for sale and to plant from November to March. The lifting season starts after the first couple of hard frosts.
We stock many different varieties of native bare root hedging plants. Although bare root plants are only available, and able to be planted, when dormant (between November to March), we sell thousands to people planting woodlands, shelter belts and hedgerows. It is much cheaper than using container grown shrubs, and they establish well with good maintenance and protection from rabbit, vole and deer damage.
Container Grown Deciduous Hedging
Deciduous hedging is available for planting all year round. We stock several sizes of deciduous hedging plants-all make a great dense twiggy hedge which, although they lose their leaves over winter, offer a surprisingly good screening option. Most of the species we stock are great for wildlife and many have seasonal interest in the stems, fruit, flowers and leaves throughout the year.
Container Grown Evergreen Hedging
This type of hedging is available for planting all year round. Nicholsons has a huge range of species and sizes of container grown hedging from 2 litre pots of Quercus ilex (Holm oak) to large specimen laurels (Prunus lusitanica) up to 3m tall.
Our established range of mature hedging is becoming increasingly popular for projects that require instant impact. It is perfect for garden fencing, privacy screens and hedges.
