Product Information

Treat wildlife and add structure to your garden with this Field Maple hedging. Witness a journey of colour across spring and summer as young green leaves change to an autumnal shade of golden yellow as the year progresses.

In spring, pollen-rich yellowy green flowers blossom across the hedges, just as the leaves begin to appear and show off their full five-lobed shape.

Large leaves are perfect for nesting birds, while winged fruits, loved by small garden mammals such as voles and squirrels, are produced in autumn when the green colour abandons the leaves to make way for yellows and reds.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence.

With an ability to thrive in most soil types, plant Field Maple hedges in full sun or partial shade, while avoiding full shade if possible. Eventually forming a full and satisfying hedge, this compact variety grows at a fast rate, by up to 30-60cm per year.

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.

Supplied as 10 bare root hedges, 40-60cm tall, ready for planting.

Top Tips

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

Care Information

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.
