Key Points
Full Product Details

Product Information

A healthy and deciduous hedge plant perfect for introducing structure and months of interest to any garden.

New green leaves erupt with deeply crinkled veins and ribbed edges from spring, before turning golden yellow in autumn.

Green catkins emerge at the tail end of spring to add extra depth to the plant, before becoming winged fruits in autumn, perfect for feeding small garden mammals and birds, such as finches and tits.

Hornbeam hedges bring a rich and healthy shape to the garden for a longer period than many other hedgerow varieties, so autumnal leaves in shades of golden-yellow to orange can be seen even when winter rolls around.

The very hardy and resilient Hornbeam can be grown in most soil types, while shaded and windy garden spots can also be tolerated. Hornbeam hedges grow at a rate of 20-40cm per year.

Supplied as one bare root hedge, 60-90cm 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.
