Bare-Root-Hedging

This is the traditional and economical way to purchase hedging and young trees. These plants are grown in the soil in our fields and can only be sold when dormant, usually from November until early April. Bare rooted trees are a low cost, low input crop (we don’t need pots, compost etc) and so represent great value for money.

Planting density is very much a matter of choice and budget but we recommend taking full advantage of these low cost plants and planting a staggered double row, generally at between 5 and 7 plants per metre to give a dense bushy hedge. A single row at 3-5 plants per metre will still give good coverage if you are patient. (These figures are guidelines for smaller plants, our recommended planting density varies with plant size/age and this information is displayed with each size of plant).Some customers choose to order a few spares and pop them in the veg patch/flower border to replace the occasional failed plant.

Need more than £1000 worth of plants? Why not email us today with the numbers and size(s) you are interested in and we will get back to you with a special quote, or simply call us on 01580 765600.

We hope you find the information on our website useful but please call on 01580 765600 or email us if you need any help choosing the right plants or working out of numbers or indeed any other hedging advice - our office is manned by ladies who have all had first hand production experience working outside with the plants here on the nursery with the plants so are well qualified to advise you.
