Instant Hedges will be exhibiting at this year’s FutureScape event. Pro Landscaper spoke to Instant Hedges ahead of the event to find out more about the company, the products it supplies and the next step for it.
Can you tell us a little about Instant Hedges?
Instant Hedges are established suppliers and growers of semi-mature and mature trees and hedging. Having grown from a small family business, we’re passionate about what we do and are proud of the reputation we have built during the 15 years since we began trading. From your initial enquiry through to delivery we’re here to help bring your projects together. Whether you require long runs of hedging or just a few meters we can supply the hedging you need. Throughout the year we supply evergreen and deciduous hedging in our meter-long Instant Hedge troughs and individual containers. During the rootball season we grow and supply a large range of hedging, trees and topiary.
What are the main products you supply?
At Instant Hedges we understand that no two projects are the same and when it comes to gardens clients have very different requirements and tastes. To help with your design decisions, we stock an extensive range of trees and hedging and we specialise in training ‘formed’ trees to your specification – pleaches with varying stem and frame sizes, from classic runs of hornbeam and beech to the seasonal explosions of flowers, fruits and fiery colours borne by crab apples, cherries, Liquidambar and Magnolias. While we all appreciate the value of evergreens for year-round structure, we can’t help feeling that many people are missing out on the beauty, freshness and rhythm that deciduous trees bring to outdoor spaces.
Carpinus betulus, Euonymus japonicus, Eleagnus ebbingei, Fagus sylvatica & Purpurea, Griselinia littoralis, Ilex aquifolium, crenata, maximowicziana kanehirae and meservaea Blue Maid / Blue Prince, Ligustrum ovalifoilum & vulgare Atrovirens, Mixed Native, Osmanthus burkwoodii, Photinia Red Robin, Prunus laurocerasus, Prunus lusitanica, Quercus ilex, Taxus and Thuja
What are the key selling points of your products?
We offer a fully bespoke service, from design & consultancy, through sourcing, supply and distribution to planting.
Our extensive range of quality trees, hedging and topiary is available on a quick turnaround in large quantities and one of our key selling points is our flexibility to adapt stock to meet your specification if necessary.
We are equipped to fulfil your complete tree and shrub requirement as well as hedging, for added convenience.
Also available is a whole range of unique shaped specimens we have trained ourselves which are perfect for adding structure and focal points in a planting scheme.
Where do you deliver to and what are your delivery times?
We’re based in Buckinghamshire and we deliver nationwide with our own fully equipped vehicles. We offer forklift or crane offload to make our clients jobs easier.
What’s the next step for the company?
Our aim is to continue to serve our clients with an end to end service supplying the best products available. Our home grown field production is growing year on year with over 5,000 trees being planted this year. Considering the expanding need to offer British grown trees we are prepared for the demand. Our flowering native trees and hedges will form a large part of our focus this year with the emphasis on wildlife.
