Unfortunately that is one that O/H doesn't like.
Off to the nursery to take a close look. So far it's the Photinia as the popular favourite.

Re: Garden hedging

Anyone know suppliers of Photinia's (red robin) in France preferably the centre? Need around 250-300 plants.

I bought ours from Planfor https://www.planfor.fr/

They are in Les Landes, but the plants were well packed, and arrived quickly and safely here in Aude.

I believe I bought "kits" of 13 plants per metre of hedge, 40-50 cm high.

I planted them in early 2014, and they have now reached a height of just on 2 metres, and will probably be trimmed for the first time this year.

On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

That’s what I’ve done, as mentioned in my ‘mixed hedge’ suggestion. I planted flowering deciduous shrubs and various evergreens and allowed them to grow together. They are trimmed once a year or so to keep them from getting too leggy.

I hate photinias.

Hate is a strong word, may I ask why?

The nursery suggested about 1m apart, allowing for future growth?
Thanks for the link, looking at it now.  Ahh 13 plants per 10metre of hedging.

Sorry, 13 per 10 metres of hedgeBlush [:$]

They grow together quickly, and close planting makes them grow upwards.
