Pot Grown Mixed Hedging

Pot grown mixed hedging plants are a versatile solution for new native hedges because they can be planted all year round. (Most mixed hedging is sold as bare roots, for planting only in the natural winter season of dormancy, from November until April). With these potted plants you can get the job done, with predictable 100% success at any time of year (provided they are watered!). We supply a range of sizes including larger plants for a more instant effect, all grown on our own UK nursery.

Mixed hedging contains a range of native species to provide interest through the seasons with flowers, fruits/nuts and autumn colours, it will become a valuable wildlife habitat encouraging birds and other species into your garden while also developing into an effective and thorny barrier as the plants grow.

These pot grown mixed hedging plants are suitable for ultimate hedge heights from 120cm up to several metres. All native hedgerows are best trimmed from August onwards, ideally in winter. Native hedging is suitable for all soil types in full sun and partial shade, they are well suited to windy and exposed planting sites, where these tough native plants will quickly establish and thrive.

Information on the species included in our Pot Grown Mixed Hedging may be found under the details tab opposite (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. Like all our mixed native hedging plants, pot grown mixed hedging is sold in packs of 50.

How many/how to plant Pot Grown Mixed Hedging

Single Row
When planting a new 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 Double Row
(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).

These top quality pot grown specimens will transplant from their pots easily at any time of year as there is no root disturbance, just be sure to keep them well watered through the first season if the weather is dry.Pot grown plants will often overtake larger bare root plants within the first year or two, to give them the best start we recommend adding Rootgrow when you plant them. All our hedgerow mixes are sold in multiples of 25 plants.
