A mainstay of mixed hedgerows with an abundance of white, scented blossom in spring, followed by deep red fruits, known as ‘haws’, in autumn. Hugely beneficial to wildlife who thrive among its dense and spiny foliage and feed and forage on its flowers and fruits. Great for nesting birds too.
Our UK grown hedging plants are supplied as cell-grown saplings ready for immediate planting into their final positions. Cell-grown plants are known to have high establishment success rates with rapid early growth and are uniform and compact in size for quick and easy planting.
As a guide, use 5 plants per metre length. When planting, set out in a zig-zag style to encourage a thick and bushy hedge.
Medium to large sized hedging that can be easily clipped and maintained to 1.5m. Growth rate 40 - 60cm per year. Trim and prune after flowering and then again in the autumn to maintain shape and height.
