Hedges provide privacy, shade, protection from the wind, and guard against soil erosion. Some good reasons to grow a hedge: some provide beauty and interest throughout the seasons, some make the perfect partner to spring bulbs, some create a rich tapestry of texture and others are deliciously scented! These hedges can be left to grow free, or kept neatly trimmed – the choice is yours!
