Our Thuja Brabant, also known as Thuja Occidentalis Brabant, is a luxury conifer that is similar to our Leylandii and Thuja Smaragd variant, however the Brabant is slightly bushier. Whilst still maintaining the unique conical shape that Thuja hedging is sought after for, the Brabant will expand its width more so than the Smaragd and therefore makes a perfect option for those after thick, dense hedging for maximum privacy. The foliage is a bright green colour with an aromatic scent and keeps its beauty year-round as it is evergreen. The shrubs will also thrive and grow well in the British climate, as their striking colour will not fade during the colder months.
The Thuja Brabant (if preferred) will grow tall- easily over 5m in height, making them ideal for instant privacy and protection. Due to the natural shaping of the Thuja, they require low maintenance in shaping and pruning and when planted together will form a dense hedge that is perfect for sound and wind protection.
The Thuja Brabant is placed into the “fast growing hedge” category as it will grow around 50-60cm per year and can reach a mature height of 5 meters tall if desired. We offer you the choice of Thuja Brabant in a range of sizes, meaning you can choose to affordably grow the hedging or receive it fully-grown and instantly reap the benefits of its colour and natural sculpting. If you are after a slightly slower growing conifer that may be slightly less maintenance, then our Smaragd variety is a great option for you.
The Thuja Brabant is a very hardy shrub that will thrive in most soil types providing they are well-drained and in full or part sunlight. The area they are planted in however should not be overly exposed to avoid any harsh wind damage. When correctly cared for, the Thuja Brabant can survive for up many many years, making them great value for money as your garden can continue to reap the aesthetic benefits of the Thuja for a good period.
Our Thuja Brabant are a great option for those seeking privacy and colour, year-round in their gardens. The conical shape of the Brabant ensures the hedging is easy to maintain whilst still allowing for good wind and sound protection as the variety will grow well in width, creating a bushy and full hedging.
