Prickly

Prickly plants have been used for centuries as formidable defensive barriers. Marking a field or garden boundary, penning in livestock or as an added natural barrier on existing fencing or walls to prevent graffiti or access. A little patience is needed as your new prickly defender grows and thickens but when established, your natural barrier will be the most effective and impenetrable security guard.

Choose prickly plants as low hedging, over walls, along fences or as taller hedges along access points.
