The Maple hedge (Acer Campestre) is found amongst the UK’s native hedgerows, with beautiful shades of yellow flowers in spring and green leaves followed by golden hues of the leaves in autumn. This is a beautiful addition to any existing hedge, garden or lush green landscape wish to add it to.

Field Maple hedges make excellent additions to every garden, growing rapidly up to 30-60cm in height each year to a maximum height of five metres. They’re easily maintained and their well-known bright green leaves that change to yellow during winter months similar to Guelder Rose hedges.

Like many native hedge species,  Acer Campestre is perfect for those welcoming British wildlife into their gardens. The hedge is extremely popular with insects and moths that feed on its leaves, whilst its small, yellow-green coloured flowers provide much-needed nectar for pollinators such as bees and butterflies. Amongst its use as a stunning garden plant, Field Maple hedges and trees have traditionally had many uses, from making maple syrup from its sap to its use in traditional wood carving and turning.

Hopes Grove Nurseries offer Acer Campestre as instant hedging, potted hedging and bare root hedging varieties.
Caring for Acer Campestre
This deciduous, fast-growing and dense hedging plant is of medium size and native to the UK and can survive well in limestone and chalk soils. Field Maple hedges can enjoy a diverse range of conditions including full sunlight and partial shade, with well-moistened soil and good drainage. From coastal sites to chalky and exposed soil, Field Maple is very versatile and tough in different conditions.

It can take anywhere between 10 and 20 years for it to reach its maximum height as a tree but can be kept to your desired height with easy maintenance. This makes it very suitable as an informal garden hedge that can be trimmed regularly.

In terms of pruning, we recommend trimming these hedges in winter, as they can grow at least up to four feet and over. This can be continued until the Field Maple hedge reaches maturity.

For best results, it is a good idea to plant them 18 inches apart for a thick, dense hedge that’s strong and durable.
