Approximately 15 years ago it became obvious that there was a demand for instant hedging to help to create instant privacy and security in outdoor settings.
Today at Wykeham there are more than 20 kilometres of instant hedging in production at any one time, and over the years the range has been increased to include all of the popular fully hardy hedging varieties.
Our famous Instant Hedging stock are the primary ranges grown in our fields and include our Wykeham Premium Instant Laurel Hedge Blocks, (Prunus laurocerasus Rotundifolia), so mature and dense that they cannot easily be pushed through. We also produce solid, instant hedging in Yew (Taxus baccata), Beech (Fagus sylvatica), Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus), and our magnificent specimens of Holly (Ilex aquifolium cultivars).
Almost all of the hedging is produced in sizes of 175cm and above for truly instant impact (some varieties, such as our Wykeham Premium Instant Laurel Hedge Blocks, may be available in sizes much larger than this. Also, we field-grow Pines ranging in sizes from 175cm to 450cm.
Our nursery is in a frost pocket in North Yorkshire, so you can be sure that the stock we grow is fully hardy and free from imported pests and diseases.
