The Berberis Green (Berberis Thunbergii) is well known for being a prickly shrub of a medium size. It makes for a great security hedge, all while pleasing the eye. It’s a neat deciduous hedge, with its leaves turning a gorgeous burnt orange and then red in autumn, before they fall off. In spring, you can expect to see yellow/orange flowers which then turn into beautiful red berries. In the autumn the berries appear to drip from the branches, setting of the redness of the leaves spectacularly.

These hedging plants can be grown in any soil, so long as the soil doesn’t become waterlogged, and survive well being planted at windy sites. They are also ok to be planted where there is partial shade. Maintaining the hedge is easy; it likes to be pruned in the late spring once it has finished flowering.

The only slight issue is that of planting the hedge, due to its prickly nature. We would strongly recommend you wear thick gardening gloves to help reduce the impact of the sharpness of the prickles.

Typically these hedges will grow up to about one foot a year, and we would recommend planting these eighteen inches apart. This will help it to grow into a dense hedge that will stop intruders thanks to its spiky nature. Don’t worry, we will provide you with full planting instructions upon arrival of your order.
