Pot Grown Hedge Mix Mixed Native
Pot grown mixed native hedging – perfect for planting in the spring and summer months when the season for bare root plants has finished.
Mixed native hedges can be maintained at any height from 120cm up to 5 metres or more, they are usually trimmed once a year at any time from August onwards, preferably during winter. Some customers choose to trim only one side of the hedge each year to give increased wildlife value and better early season nesting cover for birds, trimming the other side and the top the following year and so on. This also leaves some of the persistent berries/fruits for the birds during the cold months.
This is a Quickthorn (Hawthorn) based hedge with 75% of the species to knit the hedge together making a formidable wildlife friendly barrier, the balance is taken from a selection of other native species to give interest through the seasons.

Planting density – how many plants are needed?
When planting a new species rich native hedge, we recommend using 3 plants per metre for a single row hedge planting them each 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 with the 2 and 4 litre pots.
The larger plants in 7.5 litre pots could be set in a double row at 66cm in the rows (3 per metre) or closer at 50cm apart (4 per metre), you could set them at 5 per metre (and we would love to sell you the plants!) but this might be a touch of overkill unless you are determined to have a mature looking hedge very quickly!
