This is a simple way to buy your hedging, plus you will benefit from a 5% saving as opposed to purchasing these items separately AND now with FREE ROOTGROW.
Choose prickly plants as low hedging, over walls, along fences or as taller hedges along access points. Our prickly security hedge pack will create a formidable defensive barrier whilst looking great throughout the seasons with a combination of leaf, flower and wildlife interest amongst its prickly armoury. Add your protection options to maximise hedge growth and success, too.
Each pack contains plants and Rootgrow. Protection, in the form of spiral guards & bamboo canes (and mesh guards with spray shield for the Holly), can be purchased as part of the pack too.

- Enough Rootgrow to adequately cover the number of plants.

Planting & guidance
It is personal preference of how to mix the species within this hedge. You can either plant the mixed species in blocks to create more impact for that particular species or alternatively mix them up to create a more natural effect.
We recommend that the hedgerow is planted in a double staggered row at five plants per metre as an average; however you can still plant at four or six per metre. The distance between the rows being approx. 30cm.
Once the species have been planted, insert the cane into the ground and then place the spiral guard over the plant and cane. The only reason for the cane is to hold the spiral in place as this will not be supported by the plant. With the Holly, use the mesh guard with spray shield and position two canes in opposite corners within the guard for support.
