    Known for their beautiful cloudy plumes of snow-white flowers in early spring, blackthorns characterise the spring landscape. Later in the year, rich, inky-black fruits appear along with the sloe pickers, gathering harvests for the delicious, syrupy tincture — sloe gin!

    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 one year old (1+0) which means they have been grown for a year in the seed bed. The plants are lifted and graded at between 60-80cm tall, which is 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. Keep well watered until well established, and trim in milder periods throughout the winter.
