Economy mixed native hedging plants give interest for much of the year while encouraging a wide range of wildlife, our mix is made up from the following plants:
75% Quickthorn (Hawthorn, May) – Crataegus Monogyna

When planting a new native hedge, we recommend using 3 plants per metre for a single row hedge – setting each plant 13inches/33cm apart.
For a thicker double row hedge, use 5 plants per metre – setting the plants 40cm apart in each row with 40cm between the 2 rows.
For a really thick, extra dense hedge that may be achieved more quickly, use 7 plants per metre in a double row. Set each plant 11inches/28cm apart in each row with 40cm between the 2 rows.
Native hedge plants are supplied as top quality bare root plants available when dormant from November until April which is when they should also be planted.
All our hedgerow mixes are sold in multiples of 10 plants and our minimum order is 20 plants. We offer generous discounts for larger orders.
