Beech Purple Hedging Bare Root Hedging

Purple beech (or Fagus sylvatica ‘Purpurea’) is similar to Green Beech except the foliage is a beautiful rich purple in summer, identical coppery brown in winter and the leaves are retained on the hedge plants giving the privacy of an evergreen hedge on a deciduous plant.

Purple Beech will succeed in any soil type provided that it does not become waterlogged during wet spells, especially in winter. If you do have a wet site we would recommend you consider Hornbeam (Carpinus Betulus) as a more suitable alternative.

Once established a Purple Beech hedge will grow quickly at 30-60cm per year, they are easy to maintain with a trim once a year in late summer to keep them tidy, this will also improve leaf retention on the plants in winter.

Planting distance of bare root Purple Beech hedging is very much a matter of personal preference, as a guide we recommend 4 plants per metre for the smaller sizes and 3 for the larger plants, you can plant a double row for a denser and thicker hedge which will increase the number of plants by 50%. You can use our handy plant calculator to work out how many you need.

Bare root Purple Beech are grown in the fields without needing pots or compost, and they need little in the way of water and fertiliser. They are a low input crop and are great value for money, with the bare root option working out to be the cheapest way to plant a new Purple Beech hedge.
