Hi Everyone
I have recently had to remove a large hedge that use to separate my garden, it was conifers that had sadly had their day.
am wanting to replace can anyone suggest some thing new thats quick growing, that needs no support and green all year round please.



Acuba are good as are the true laurels. both will fit the bill. I think Acuba is faster growing than the laurels.
hope this helps.

I would suggest a Beech hedge. Much more rewarding.
OK, not so fast growing, but instant pleasure (if planted in sufficient quantity) and a good support for a few clematis et al.

They are very reasonable when bought in bulk orders, the more you buy the less you pay for individual plants...

Just me thinking out loud. :)

I would grow the Portuguese laurel, Prunus lusitanica, or Elaeagnus x ebbingei. Both evergreen and robust. If a more formal hedge is required Taxus baccata, the common Yew will make a wonderful job although the foliage is poisonous.
