Bournemouth and Poole, Brackendale is not just another
garden centre but a ‘growing’ nursery in every sense,
offering a fantastic range of value for money plants that
you will not find elsewhere.

immediate screening, and supply native hedging, fruit and ornamental

hedging plants - Brackendale is a garden
centre of choice for many customers wanting to
buy hedging plants in Dorset, Hampshire and
Wiltshire. If you want to plant a hedge or
establish a boundary, we always have quantities
of evergreen hedging plants available.

and Yew are offered in a choice of heights and sizes,

an ideal way to establish a hedge. We have supplies of green beech,
hawthorn, blackthorn, hornbeam, holly, hazel,
maples and other varieties; in a range of
heights and sizes, and we are always pleased to
calculate quantities and recommend ideal variety
mixes for specific hedging requirements and

If you're looking to achieve an instant hedge, block a
view, or increase privacy in your garden we have mature
evergreen shrubs available up to 2.5m high, and conifers up to 4m high. Plants can be
selected directly from our Nursery field to ensure they
best meet specific requirements.
in the Nursery: With the days shortening, light
levels falling and temperatures cooling,
we're seeing the bright green summer foliage deepen,
and vibrant red and bronze leaves appearing in the
Nursery. Colourful fruits are also developing,
with our Pyracantha, Malus, Sorbus and Cotoneasters carrying
an abundance of berries. The intense colour changes are also apparent in
our conifers and we've got some lovely displays of
specimen and hedging conifers at the moment. We are
reserving 'bare-root' native hedging plants for
customers planning ahead, and if you're wanting to
plant some new trees to take advantage of the fruit
next season there couldn't be a better time to take
a look at our range of apple, pear, plum and cherry
trees than now.
Visit us and take a look for yourself.
