Native Hedging Varieties

Native hedging plants that occur in most hedges throughout the British Isles.

It is important to ensure the roots are not exposed to the sun or drying winds between lifting in the nursery and planting on site. For these reasons please keep your bare root hedging plants in the box or bag when planting out. We would recommend planting at 5 per metre in a double staggered row, and be sure to ‘heel them in’ tightly to ensure good root to soil contact!

Bare root Native hedges and trees are available to buy from November to March each year, you can pre-order as early as late September and October

Native hedging varieties bring all year interest with bright coloured stems, blossoms and food for the birds, examples include: Crataegus monogyna (Hawthorn), Acer campestre (Field Maple), Corylus avellana (Hazel), Rosa Canina (Dog rose) and Cornus sanguinea (Common dogwood).
