Our most popular hedges with berries
Berries come in all kinds of colours and sizes and appear on hedges across thousands of gardens throughout the UK, and for a number of reasons. Their main benefit is their added wildlife value as they entice many hungry British birds and small animals into the garden. The luscious berries are favoured amongst countless birds and critters who seek out these often vital food sources.
Get closer with nature as you become familiar with the different species of birds drawn to your garden. Thrushes & Waxwings enjoy the glossy, red berries of Hawthorn hedges, and Green Finches adore the bright orange hips of Dog Rose, to name but a few. Including a diverse selection of hedges with berries in your garden, will increase its biodiversity as each hedge exhibits an array of features that attract different groups of wildlife. You will be overwhelmed by the number of birds, insects and small animals that you may see.
Using hedges with berries within a garden design allows you to get imaginative with all sorts of colours. Pyracantha produces bright, hot colours of red, orange and yellow that look incredible on a single species hedge, but when planted together, create an incredible, fiery multi-coloured effect. Whilst Viburnum berries turn to jet-black, Blackthorn produces blue sloes and Spindle orange berries within pink casings.
Certain species produce berries that complement other hedge features, such as as the stunning orange berries of Berberis thunbergii that flatter the soft shades of red, exhibited by its autumn foliage. The emphasis of colours within a hedge, whether it be a collection of different coloured berries, or a distinguishing berry and foliage combination, creates an amazing, eye-catching garden feature.
