Welcome to the woodland and hedging plant section. If you have any queries after reading the following information please do not hesitate to ask, we are here to help. A local delivery service is available but with regret we do not offer a mailorder service for our plants.
We have a wide range of hedging plants available bare-root from 1st December to 31st March. This is a good time of year to plant a hedge as, during the dormant season, the plant is putting all its energy into growing robust, healthy roots, which means the plant will grow more vigorously come the spring. Because bare-root hedging plants are lifted directly from the field, you get more plant for your pound. You won’t receive pots, compost, or unnecessary frills—just premium British grown hedging plants ready to flourish in your garden.
Native hedging plants are usually planted at six plants to the metre on a staggered row with 30cm between the trees and 30cm between the rows. A good diverse mix for native hedging is:- Hawthorn 70%, Hazel 10%, Guelder Rose 4%, Dog Rose 3%, Field Maple 3%, Blackthorn 2%, Crab Apple 2%, Dogwood 2%, Holly 2%, Spindle tree 2%. If all this sounds complicated, don’t worry, we are here to help.
The bare-root season runs from 1st December to 31st March which is a good time of year to plant one of our British woodland trees. Planting during the dormant season means the plant is able to focus its energy into developing strong, healthy roots which in turn means it is stronger for the growing season. Because bare-root trees are lifted directly from the field, you won’t find pots, compost, or unnecessary frills—just premium British grown trees for your garden.
In this section you will find a similar range of plants as in the bare root section but also an expanded range that include evergreen hedging plants.
