Practicality Brown is the premier distributor for UK-grown Elveden Instant Hedge.

This product has been developed and extensively trialled at the company's production site in Norfolk since 1998. Over 45,000m is currently in production.

The hedge is grown for a number of years at the Elveden Estate, where it is lifted to order – it looks like a mature hedge when planted, because it is.

Elveden Instant Hedge has proved itself in both commercial and domestic situations to be mature and reliable, the first truly instant hedge.

The hedge offers and effective visual screen, and provides interest and beauty from seasonal changes.

It also acts as a natural filter, absorbing dust and noise, while offering food and shelter for insects, birds and mammals.

Growing conditions

A specially developed root control system ensures managed root growth and allows stress-free, all year round planting.

All stock is certified UK provenance, and is irrigated and treated with controlled release nutrients to optimise health.

Dimensions

Unique production methods allow continuous rootstrips of mature, flat-sided hedge to be supplied.

Instant hedges are sold by the linear metre, typically in 2.5m lengths with 50cm row widths.

Heights range from 1.2 to 1.8m high.

Availability

Elveden Instant Hedge is available on a supply-and-plant basis throughout the UK.

Supply-only trade terms is available to the landscape and nursery trade, with efficient nationwide delivery.
