    Vivid green catkins in March, followed by clusters of green fruit, and toothed mid-green leaves turning orange and gold in autumn. The native hornbeam is a perfect choice for formal hedges, it’s tolerant of wet, clay soils and responds well to pruning.

    Our bare root hedging range, with known seed provenance, is a very low cost way of planting a hedge. This hedging pack is only available to buy and plant when dormant (November- early April).

    Our plants are 3 years old (1+2) which means they have been grown for 1 year in the seed bed then lifted and grown on for another 2 year in a larger field. The plants are lifted and graded at between 1m-1.25m tall, which is a good size to plant hedges at to get good establishment.

  • Garden care: For best results, plant these bareroot plants out as soon as they arrive into well prepared soil. Hedges should be clipped in late summer or early autumn.
