Edible Mixed Native Hedging

Edible mixed native hedging – A forager’s perfect hedgerow! A diverse wildlife friendly mixture of reliable hedging species to provide a varied annual harvest of nuts, hips and berries, born on a stock proof hedge.

Our specially selected mixture of hedgerow plants will provide a varied annual crop of nuts, hips and berries suitable for making jams, syrups, (and sloe gins!) and of course for eating fresh. As with all our mixes, these plants will knit together to make a dense hedge that is both stock proof and will support a wide variety of wildlife.

Edible mixed native hedging can be maintained at any height from 120cm up to several metres. They are best trimmed once a year at any time from August onwards, ideally in winter. (Taking care to leave some of the persistent berries/fruits for the birds if you prefer).

Full details of the species included in our Edible hedgerow mix may be found at the bottom of the page (we don’t label the individual species), simply plant them in a randomized mixture for a natural look that will quickly become a haven for wildlife. The prices shown for our mixed native hedging is per plant and we sell them in multiples of 25.
