Wholesale nursery Readyhedge was found by Simon and Sue Williamson 20 years ago and they are still actively involved in the nursery today. It was at the forefront of instant hedging and today grows in containers an extensive range of quality instant hedging, aerial screening panels and a selection of topiary.
With instant hedging becoming a prominent way to provide privacy for garden and seating areas and creating security for buildings Readyhedge’s range provides multiple options for all garden design needs. The majority of the plants are all grown on the nursery in the United Kingdom with a small proportion being hand selected by Simon and the team from carefully chosen growers within Europe.
Situated on an 18-acre site Readyhedge grows a vast range of hedging which ranges from its Readyhedge Troughs – which include Buxus sempervirens, Ilex crenata and Osmanthus burkwoodii – to its larger Readybag Range – which includes Escallonia ‘Crimson Spire’, Fagus sylvatica and Carpinus betulus – to its aerial screening – which includes Pyrus Chanticleer panels. The nursery also stocks a selection of root-balled hedging units during the winter months. Within the Readybag and Readyhedge trough ranges customers will find a number of plants all growing well together and carefully clipped into a Readyhedge.
Each year Readyhedge grows approximately 40 kilometres of hand clipped hedging, which is grown and produced in a one-metre-long container with the hedges ranging in height from 30cm to 180cm.
The clientele for the nursery ranges from Garden designers, landscape contractors and landscape architects as well as supplying other nurseries with its hedging. Readyhedge is supplying across the United Kingdom operating on a 48-hour delivery time period and using trusted local transport companies to achieve this. However, the Pershore based site currently does not supply into Europe due to its various franchises.
As well as the Pershore location, the nursery has three franchises based in Europe. Readyhedge Holland grows 8km of hedging some under contract for us as well as for its own sales in Holland. Readyhedge Ireland produces approximately 4 km for the Irish market as well supplying us if needed. The newest franchise is Readyhedge France, this is still in its early stages of production for the French market.
Over the years Readyhedge has been involved with several RHS and other horticultural trade shows, including 2018 BBC Gardeners World Live, for which it supplied the hedging for A Breath of Fresh Air a Gold medal winning garden designed by Martyn Wilson.
When it comes to future plans and aspirations for Readyhedge, Simon and the team are continuing to trial new products as well as striving towards being environmentally friendly at the top of the list. “Readyhedge will continue to grow and produce high quality hedging for supply to the industry with the plan to expand by increasing production at our franchises and UK contract growers. Readyhedge will continue to look at being more environmentally friendly with increased recycling and the reduction in plastics as well as increased use of Solar panels and the introduction of electric vehicles on to the nursery.
Readyhedges’s nursery is open from 8:00am to 4:30pm Monday to Thursday, and 8:00am till 3:30pm on Friday. Visitors are very welcome to the nursery to view the stock available. Readyhedge Ltd &
