We are a family-owned horticultural business and one of the UK’s leading specialist hedge growers and wholesalers.
Founded in 1983 on a nine-acre greenfield site in West Oxfordshire being well placed between Oxford, Abingdon, Wantage, Banbury, Cheltenham, Bicester, Gloucester, Newbury and Swindon.
We now produce over 330,000 garden plants (including 40,000 lavenders alone). We have created Hedge Xpress to offer a selection of quality garden hedging plants direct to you at competitive prices. We grow hedging plants suitable for all types of garden situations, whether purely ornamental or for boundaries or lavenders for edging. Our Key Values include our dedicated delivery service, a commitment to quality and working in tune with nature.
The range listed here includes versatile varieties and those most suited to the UK climate and soils. The Hedge Guide will help you to find the right hedging plants or lavender plants for your garden. Hedges, hedge plants, hedging, laurel hedge, privet hedge, yew hedge and leylandii hedge plants can be purchased from and delivered by Hedge Xpress in Oxfordshire in the United Kingdom to anyone living on the UK mainland.
Committed to quality
As you would expect from a specialist nursery, all container plants are grown on site so we have complete control over all aspects of quality and handling. Strict supervision and rigorous daily monitoring ensure that we focus on producing healthy, robust hedging and lavender plants.
Bare root hedging plants are carefully sourced from areas with deep sandy soils to have strong fibrous root systems. Hedging plants are perishable and we know that quality control is as important to our clients as price.
We deploy a highly efficient gantry system, very rarely seen in the UK. This results in a much more consistent crop, with less picking through and grading required at dispatch and significantly less water used.
Specialist care in tune with the environment
We operate an eco-friendly policy, walking the crops regularly to control pests, fungus or bacterial infection.
We try to encourage predators rather than apply pesticides, particularly in controlling whitefly, aphids and red spider mites. The trick is to anticipate problems before they occur. A red spider can lay 200 viable eggs within a five-day life cycle.
We use a specialist polythene film to filter out certain wavelengths, reducing aphid population by inhibiting mobility and breeding. With the future and environment in mind we are currently undertaking a full-scale trial with coir based peat-free medium.
