Hopes Grove Native Hedges

Description

Hedges are home to some 350 species of wildlife and are extremely important to the environment. Hopes Grove Nurseries are leading growers and suppliers of wildlife friendly native hedges and hedging plants.

The last few decades have seen the demise of many thousands of miles of established hedgerows and their associated wildlife. To help redress this balance we are offering four carefully selected mixtures of native species, these will grow together to form a dense rustic hedge that will be stock proof and encourage a wide variety of wildlife.
