    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- early April). These plants, with known seed provenance, are grown in rich Herefordshire soil to give them the best possible start in life so they are raring to go by the time they reach you.

    Our plants are 1 year old (1+0) which means they have been grown for 1 year in the seed bed. The plants are lifted and graded at between 80-80cm tall, which is a good size to plant hedges at to get good establishment.

    This fast growing native makes a wonderful dense, deciduous hedge and is quite tolerant of coastal conditions and cold, exposed sites. In spring the emerging deeply lobed foliage is flushed with red, but it gradually turns a lush, mid green and stays that colour throughout summer. It then takes on buttery yellow tones as the temperatures start to drop again in autumn. Small greenish-yellow flowers appear in spring, which are hardly noticeable, but the subsequent, winged fruits are quite attractive. Plant at 45cm intervals.

  • Garden care: Plant immediately upon receipt for best results into a well cultivated area. Cut back in winter when the plants are fully dormant as Acers tend to 'bleed' sap if cut while they are actively growing.
