Bargain Bare Roots are by far the cheapest way to buy top quality mixed garden hedging. We sell them at a discount of 40% compared to purchasing them as individual species on our website, but you still get the same great plants that you would expect from Hopes Grove Nurseries.
We sell bargain bare roots in five height sizes – 40/60cm (small), 60/90cm (medium), 90/120cm (tall), 120/150cm (XL) and 150/200cm (XXL)
All height sizes are available in packs of 100, 250, 500 and 1000.
Each pack contains 50% Hawthorn (Quickthorn, Crataegus monogyna, that will ensure the hedge knits together effectively) and 50% in a mix of species that will include some of the following in any combination – Blackthorn, Bird Cherry, Common Alder, Wild Crabapple, Common Dogwood, Hazel, Hornbeam, Field Maple, Mountain Ash (Rowan), Dog Rose, Spindle, English Oak, Wild Privet, Guelder Rose, Rugosa Roses and Wayfaring Tree, we may include other species of hedging if they are available on the day of despatch.
You can’t choose what is or isn’t included in the mixed half of the pack, the only guarantee we give is that you will receive at least 5 different types of plant in this half (they may be in varying proportions), and while it’s likely that larger packs will contain a wider variety of plants, we cannot guarantee it.
Our packs are ideal for general hedge planting and will grow into an effective barrier within a few seasons. They will also provide a great habitat for all kinds of wildlife including birds. We would recommend planting at a density of 3-7 per metre for 40/60cm plants and 3-5 per metre for all other sizes.
All packs have a discount of 40% compared to buying the same plants individually!
We recommend using Rootgrow when planting your new hedge, might we suggest the savings on our bargain bare roots will more than offset the comparatively modest cost of giving your hedge the best start!
