Do you mean where a plant is native to or where it was grown Ahmad? Anything that comes bare rooted from a hedging supplier will have been grown in this country.

From a garden centre with a fancy label and price to match, probably Holland


We don't have a lot of native evergreens, you won't find them in a wildlife hedge collection, scots pine, yew, holly, juniper. maybe box, not sure about that one.

you could grow ivy through it. that's good for wildlife. Not good for a formal hedge but fine in it's place

If you have a photo it would help to know what plant you're talking about.

Plus if you do cut it back beyond the current leaf line you're bound to get bits of die back. It's what laurel does
