Hedging by Trevena Cross
We grow many thousands of hedging plants in the nursery, making us the perfect choice for a hedge of any size and length - whether you're after just a few plants, or hundreds, even thousands, of plants.
Well known for diversty, and for growing many varieties of plants but in relatively small numbers, we make an exception when it comes to hedging.
We grow our hedging in bulk, producing impressive plots of what we believe to be, the very best varieties of hedging. With many homes in Cornwall and the south west situated in a coastal location, one major criteria for the hedging we grow is its suitability to a coastal position... as well as its overall hardiness, effectiveness as a hedge and attractiveness.

Griselinia, one of our most popular forms of hedging, with its attractive apple green leaves, is a perfect example of one of our hedging favourites. Hardy down to -12°C, and able to withstand salt laden winds, we grow thousands of Griselinia every year, some of which are sold in the garden centre at a small 2ltr size, with others grown on in the nursery to different sizes, right up to our largest 45ltr specimen size which takes a number of years to grow, and as a result, isn't always in stock at the garden centre!

Elaeagnus is another very strong candidate for hedging in Cornwall and beyond. A fast growing evergreen, hardy, salt-wind tolerant hedging plant, it is an even better coastal hedge than Griselinia, able to withstand conditions very close to the sea.

Finally, we must give a mention to Olearia, an extremely tough, hardy evergreen shrub that is suitable for growing in the most exposed positions near the sea, and is also neat and easy to grow.
