Company Overview

Company Overview

Hedges Direct is the UK's leading supplier of hedging plants, available nationally by ordering online or by phone. We've been selling quality hedging and garden plants since 2005 and in that time, we've sold millions of plants, from tiny 10cm plants to 9m tall, super specimens! We now sell over 120 hedging and shrub species plus a wide range of privacy screens, topiary and garden trees, plus planting and aftercare products. In a nutshell, we've got something for everyone!

We supply plants all year round to both retail and trade customers. So, whether you are a homeowner, land owner, garden enthusiast or novice, landscaper or local council, we can supply quality plants for any project regardless of size and budget. We offer competitive pricing and fast delivery, with most plants dispatched direct from our 16 acre nursery site in Lancashire where all plants are quality checked before dispatch to customers.

Having access to a large network of growers across the UK and Europe, also means that we can actually source any plants that you may need, not just those featured on our website. So, whatever your planting project or design, we can find and supply the right plants for you.

Expert Help To Choose The Right Plants
At Hedges Direct, we understand that finding the right plants for your garden can be a little daunting due to the number of plants and species available - even for our garden trade customers! But, that's where we, the experts, come in! Here's why you should come to us:
  • Understanding our customers - We passionately believe that the first step in any buying journey is to take time to understand our customers and their needs. Our end goal is to always ensure that you get exactly the right plants for your garden or project.

  • Expert sales team - To help choose the right plants, we have a dedicated and friendly sales team. Every member of our team has extensive product knowledge and will take the time to listen to you, providing relevant advice on species selection, plant suitability, maintenance, planting density and much more.

  • The right advice and information - We are happy to provide information and images to you and if we don't know the answer to a query, we'll find out and get back to you. We think it's important to educate and inform our customers, not just to sell, so that you will be happy with your garden and planting choice for years to come.

  • Buying with confidence - Buying hedging and shrubs, or any of our garden products is a considered purchase, so we understand that it might take time to make a final decision and that's OK! By personally guiding you through the buying process, we ensure that when you complete your buying journey, you are happy and confident that the plants you've chosen are absolutely perfect for you.

Plant Quality Pledge and 12 Month Guarantee
Plant Quality Pledge and 12 Month Guarantee

We never compromise on quality. Through thorough maintenance and care, our teams work hard to keep our plants healthy and our customers happy! So much so that we guarantee our hedge plants for a full 12 months! Find out more about this on our Expert Evergreen Plant Guarantee page.


We regularly visit our growing sites to check on the progress, health, and growth of our stock. All of our growers work strictly to the regulations governing the horticultural industry both here in the UK and in Europe and have many years' growing experience expertly cultivating and nurturing plants to their best potential.

When a delivery arrives at our nursery, a member of our quality team will inspect all of the plants to ensure that they meet our high-quality standard. Once the plants have been checked, our teams will find them an appropriate place on our nursery. Depending on the species and the time of year, this will be in our polytunnels, in a sheltered bay or out in our fields.

During their stay at our nursery, all plants are cared for by our dedicated plant care and maintenance team. This includes appropriate watering, feeding, pruning, and general plant maintenance including pest and disease control. Our plants are therefore in peak condition before being picked for your order.

We use the independent feedback system Feefo, All of our customers are emailed for their feedback (we don't pick and choose respondents) and those customers who reply do so directly to Feefo and not Hedges Direct, so we have no influence.

We encourage you to view our current score and read as much customer feedback as you like. See our Feefo Service Reviews here. We hope that this, plus our 5 Star Platinum Trusted Service Award given by Feefo, gives you the reassurance you need to feel confident in ordering from Hedges Direct, but if there's anything you would like to know or ask before buying your plants, we'd love to hear from you!
