Buy Native Hedgerow mixed 75 native hedgerow plants - (2 years old bare root hedging): Unique and distinctly beautiful characteristics.

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or light shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil, but will cope in most
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Our bare root hedging range is a very low cost way of planting a hedge. These plants are only available to buy and plant when dormant (November-March). These plants, with known seed provenance, are grown in rich Herefordshire soil to give them the best possible start in life so they are rearing to go by the time they reach you.

    Our plants are 2 years old (1+1) which means they have been grown for 1 year in the seed bed then lifted and grown on for another 1 year in a larger field. Lifting the plant after its 1st year encourages a healthy fibrous root system. The plants are lifted and graded at to a good size to plant hedges at to get good establishment.

    It will be easy to create your own hedgerow with this wonderful collection of native plants. We have chosen them all, not only because they display unique and distinctly beautiful characteristics, but because when planted together they will form a diverse and attractive screen that will provide a haven for wildlife. This is a robust mix of plants, which can cope in most positions including coastal or exposed sites. It has traditionally been used in rural settings for centuries, however this hedge will also work well in urban areas.

    Our native hedging pack contains 75 plants and will include

    • 25 x Crataegus monogyna (30-40cm tall)
    • 25 x Prunus spinosa (40-60cm tall)
    • 25 x Acer campestre (40-60cm tall)
    • If you want a traditional farm native hedgerow you can also add Rosa canina to plant in the hedge

  • Garden care: Plant immediately upon receipt for best results into a well prepared soil. Apply a 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the base of the plant in early spring.

    Hedging and Osmanthus plants Dear Crocus, I am looking for two Osmanthus burkwoodii plants but notice on your website that you only offer them for sale in 2 litre size. Do you have any larger Osmanthus burkwoodii plants? I am also looking for suggestions on which plants would make a good hedge. I am looking for something hardy, able to stand the frost, evergreen, not poisonous to horses and if possible, not just green possibly red / purple or variegated, any thoughts? Also, as these plants are grown in Surrey, will they be suitable to grow in the Scottish Borders? Many thanks, Jane

    Hello Jane, I'm afraid we have all the plants we sell displayed on our website so we do not sell larger sizes of the Osmanthus. As for the hedging, if you click on the link below it will take you to our full range of hedging plants. Unfortunately we do not have anything that meets all your criteria, but if you click on the smaller images it will give you a lot more information on hardiness levels (fully hardy means they can cope with the weather in Scotland) as well as leaf colour etc. Unfortunately though I do not have a list of plants which are not poisonous to horses, but your local vet may be able to help you with this. Best regards, Helen Plant Doctor
