Single Row

When planting a new foraging/edible native hedge, we recommend using 3 plants per metre for a single row hedge. (setting each plant 13inches/33cm apart).

Double Row

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).

Extra Thick

For an extra thick and dense hedge that may be achieved more quickly, use 7 plants per metre in a double row (setting each plant 11inches/28cm apart in each row with 40cm between the 2 rows).

Edible mix 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.
