    Fragrant white flowers in May, followed by spherical, glossy, dark red fruit, and deeply lobed, glossy, dark green leaves. Hawthorn makes a great specimen tree or boundary hedge for a range of settings. A valuable food source and refuge for native birds and insects, the spiny thorns serve as a deterrent against potential intruders.

    Our bare root hedging range is a very-low cost way of planting a hedge, and are only available to buy and plant when dormant (November- early April). This hedging pack, with known seed provenance, is grown in rich Herefordshire soil to provide the best possible start in life and will be raring to go by the time they reach you.

    Our plants are 2 years old (1+1) which means they have been grown for 1 year in the seed bed then lifted and grown on for another 1 year in a larger field. Lifting the plant after its 1st year encourages a healthy fibrous root system. The plants are lifted and graded at between 80cm-1m tall - a good size to plant hedges to encourage successful establishment.

  • Garden care: For best results, plant these bareroot plants out as soon as they arrive into well prepared soil.Prune hedges twice a year - in June and September, and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring.
  • Humans/Pets: Fruit are ornamental - not to be eaten
