Potted hedge plants
All the people who own a garden or a terrace will have asked themselves the problem of how to create a barrier that keeps away the prying eyes of those who pass or live near their fence. One of the most popular solutions is to create a hedge, which in addition to being functional for the purpose is also pleasant from an aesthetic point of view. Contrary to what one might think, it is not necessary to have large spaces to build and maintain a healthy and vigorous hedge, excellent results can also be obtained by using pots. Designing a hedge in this way is not difficult, it only requires the foresight to research, among the many on the market, the plants that best lend themselves to this solution and that best suit our needs.
The most suitable plants
The potted hedge plants laurel, rosemary, bamboo, oleander, holm oak, laurel-ceraso, photinia and pythosphorus tend to be more popular. These are evergreen plants which, due to their nature, never lose their leaves and therefore guarantee coverage throughout the year. Among those mentioned laurel, lauceraso and bamboo are those that require less care. They are in fact very resistant plants that adapt to any climate and that resist well also to adversities and attacks from external agents, they need only small pruning interventions to contain their shape. Plants such as photinia and oleander, on the other hand, can give that extra aesthetic touch: the chromatic variation of the leaves from the green to the red of photinia is marvelous, as is the characteristic flowering of the oleander, which is also very resistant to drought. Beyond these premises, it must be said that today, thanks to hybridization techniques, it is possible to obtain stronger and more resistant specimens than those found in nature and that many dwarf varieties can be obtained which adapt perfectly to pot cultivation.
