MORE INFORMATION

A varied and fascinating collection of native hedges that provide excellent garden privacy and shield against unwanted noise and wind - with little maintenance.

Enjoy superb green-leaved spring and summer displays, followed by seasonal autumn colours. Flowers, catkins, fruit, and even berries can be found on some of these hedges.

Supplied as 50 bare root hedging plants, 60-90cm tall, including the following:

  • Field Maple ‘Acer campestre’ x 5 - Large, textured green leaves in a five-loped shape grow in abundance on Field Maple hedges, which transform to golden yellow in autumn. Springtime brings pollen-rich blossom in a yellow-green shade, while winged fruits form in autumn. Proud holder of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
  • Hazel ‘Corylus avellana’ x 5 – Bushy hedges with big, green, rounded leaves with serrated edges and pointed tips, turning orange-gold in autumn. Fluffy yellow catkins dangle on bare twigs in early spring, along with tiny, easily missed, yellow flowers. If some catkins and flowers are saved from trimming, green hazelnuts can grow in autumn to feed squirrels.
  • Hawthorn ‘Crataegus monogyna’ x 25 – Hardy hedges with green leaves and dainty white, fragrant flowers in spring. In autumn, the flowers develop into dark red berries, loved by birds. Thorny branches and dense natured to form a barrier for the garden, as well as a habitat for more than 100 types of insects.
  • Bird Cherry ‘Prunus padus’ x 5 – Hardy and reliable, with flurries of fragrant white flowers on short spikes from spring with an almond-like perfume. Moving into autumn, the flowers turn into dark fruits along red stems.
  • Blackthorn ‘Prunus spinosa’ x 5 – A producer of delicious sloe fruits. Spring brings small white flowers, even before the oval-shaped green leaves have chance to emerge. Autumnal black fruits, like damsons, can be picked when ripe in November and turned into sweet, fruity gin.
  • Dog Rose ‘Rosa canina’ x 5 – Dog Rose hedges grow with rich green leaves and hooked thorns during spring and summer. Pale pink to white flowers emerge in summer, coating the plant with colour and bringing a floral aroma to the air. The flowers turn to red rose hips in autumn, which are delicious to birds.

Don’t forget to use one of our handy bamboo cane and spiral guard sets when planting a bare root hedge. The cane will keep the bare root upright as it grows, while the spiral guard will protect the base of the plant from wildlife to achieve as thick a hedge as possible.

CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

For best performance, plant bare root hedges in the winter.

Care Guide

On Arrival:

  • When your bare root hedges arrive, be sure to place them upright in a bucket of clean water as soon as possible for a minimum of two hours. 
  • Only remove the plants from the water when you go to plant them, to ensure the roots are wet when planted and avoiding the chance of them drying out. 
  • If you are not ready to immediately plant your bare roots when they arrive, they can be stored in a sheltered space, such as a shed, for up to a week. Just be sure to open the package they arrive in and keep the roots moist.

Planting:

  • Where possible, plant in well-drained, good-quality soil in a sunny or partially shaded space in the garden for best performance. 
  • Trim the roots slightly before planting, as this will encourage healthier growth. 
  • Dig a trenched hole in the ground in the shape of a ‘V’, deep enough for the bare root to sit comfortably so the ‘tide mark’ of the root is level with the ground. This marks the level where the bare root was previously planted before lifting for delivery.
  • Ensure the roots are completely covered in soil, then firm the soil around, as water will gather in any remaining air pockets and potentially damage the roots when it freezes.
  • Water immediately after planting, then again whenever there are three or more days of continuous dry weather.
  • Where the weather is hot, daily watering may be needed throughout the first year of growth.
  • For an impressive display when planting multiple hedges, place five per metre. For a thicker hedge, plant seven per metre.
