Glebe Farm Hedging is a family run business supplying over 60 varieties of hedge plants and young trees by mail order to customers throughout the British Isles.

 

Established by William Baird, whose family have farmed in Langham for over 70 years, Glebe Farm Hedging is founded on a wealth of horticultural knowledge and expertise. Using land and packing facilities available, we have been able to diversify to supply around 100,000 plants at what would otherwise be a non-productive time of year on the farm. Customers include The National Trust, garden centres, local authorities, farmers, landscapers and many individual garden owners.

 

Most plants are supplied as dormant, bare-rooted, field grown transplants which are are lifted and despatched from late October to late March. Some pot grown plants are available all year round.

Determined that Glebe Farm plants will succeed and thrive we have put together a comprehensive care and site preparation guide to enable the customer to give their hedge the best possible start.

Protection from harsh weather, wild (and pet) animals, thorough weed control and direct watering are very important in the first few years of a hedge's life and we hope that customers will find the hedging accessories listed in our catalogue useful in achieving this.

 

Although, at present we do not have a retail sales area on the farm, customers are welcome to come and inspect the quality of our plants or collect a pre-booked order. However, we would ask you to ring and make an appointment first.

 

If you have any questions about what type of hedge to plant, how many plants you will need or any other cultural questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at Glebe Farm.
