When planting a new flowering native hedgerow, we recommend using 3 plants per metre for a single row hedge, placing each plant 13inches/33cm apart.
For a thicker double row hedge use 5 plants per metre, placing the plants 40cm apart in each row with 40cm between the 2 rows.
For an extra thick and dense hedge that may be achieved more quickly, use 7 plants per metre in a double row, placing each plant 11inches/28cm apart in each row with 40cm between the 2 rows.
Flowering native hedgerow hedge plants are supplied as top quality bare root plants available when they’re dormant from November until April or as potted plants which may be planted out at any time of year. All our hedgerow mixes are sold in multiples of 25 plants.
