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 hedge or outdoor setting you wish to add it to. We stock the Acer Campestre Maple field hedge here at Hopes Grove.
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. It likes full sunlight or partial shade ,with well moistened soil and good drainage. It can take anywhere between 10 and 20 years for it to reach its maximum height. The leaves are recognisable due to their red tinge, which then turn green and yellow in autumn. We recommend trimming these hedges in winter, as they can grow at least up to four feet and over. For best results it is a good idea to plant them 18 inches apart.

Bare Root Hedging
These are field grown plants, lifted during the dormant season (normally November-April) and delivered ready for planting without any soil on the roots. The most cost-effective way to plant a new hedge.
