Product Overview

About Purple Barberry Hedging

dependent on time of year they may not have new growth or foliage due to dormancy.

Berberis thunbergii atropurpurea (Purple Berberis) is a striking deciduous dwarf shrub with a compact and bush habit making it ideal for a low hedge. The spiny stems bear dramatic purplish-red, oval shaped leaves which become brighter and more vibrant in autumn. In the spring and summer, yellow flowers are borne which stand out wonderfully against the velvet-like purple foliage. The flowers are closely followed by deep orange berries that eventually turn scarlet red and provide a welcome treat for wildlife. Berberis is a perfect intruder deterrent whilst at the same time providing a safe haven for birds and small animals. Tough and easy to grow hedging plants that will do well in virtually any soil and situation including coastal, though they do like sun or partial shade.

Right Packaging

As an online plant store, we recognise the need to protect the environment and have thought very carefully about the packaging we use and where we buy it from to make sure your plants turn up in good condition with the least impact on the environment.

When it comes to packaging, our philosophy takes the following into account:

Sustainability - all of the packaging we used can be fully reused, recycled or composted. And, in the unfortunate event that it does make its way to landfill, it will biodegrade, leaving nothing but humus behind.

The right packaging for the job - we want our plants to arrive in perfect condition so we have designed packaging that holds your plants safely and securely inside the box, meaning they turn up in great condition.

What's our packaging made from?

Our outer packaging is made from corrugated cardboard. This cardboard can withstand the weight of your plants and is not susceptible to moisture so will remain strong and stable until your plants are delivered and you’re ready to unpack them. Not only that, it will keep your plants safe and undamaged in transit.

As well as being perfect for keeping your plants safe, corrugated cardboard is easy to recycle and is in keeping with our commitment to ensure we use the more environmentally friendly packaging as possible.

Packaging sustainability

We have chosen to partner with a packaging supplier that has the same environmental values as us. All packaging uses 85% recycled material and is 100% recyclable and compostable. This commitment to the environment is backed up by a Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) accreditation and ISO 14001 accreditation for their environmental management system.
