Blackthorn hedges are unsurpassed for providing a barrier against pets, animals or intruders. A well clipped hedge is dense and thorny providing a super tough barriers against both weather and intruders. Blackthorn is also a very handsome hedge with small glossy leaves and white flowers which appear in Spring. Blackthorn also produces dusky, purple sloes in Autumn which can be pricked and added to gin to make delicious slow gin for Christmas.

Bare root blackthorn hedge plants will grow well in most soil, they will do best in full sun.

Our Plants - We run a relatively small, independent nursery so our bare root plants are lifted to order rather than lifted and stored. Plants which are lifted to order are quicker to establish in Spring as their root systems spend less time out of the ground. Our plants are also grown in an exposed North West location and have had to deal with all nature can throw at them. They are supplied as tough, top quality bare root plants that will thrive on any site.

What is the difference between Standard and Premium spec?
From a growers point of view the difference is the speed the hedge will establish. While all our hedging stock is 2 years old the Premium plants will create a hedge that is a year ahead of the Standard spec for the reasons stated below.

Standard Spec
Plants are grown from seedling stock planted in a field situation at approx 2 inches apart. Standard stock is supplied unpruned and will need to cut back to 15cm when planted out. The plants will produce a hedge of the same quality as the Premium hedge but will typically be one year behind in terms of growth. Standard spec is more suitable for large scale Agri applications.

Premium Spec
Premium plants are grown from seedling stock planted in a field situation at approx 6 inches apart to allow more room for root development. Plants are pre pruned to 15cm to create a multi-stemmed plant. Premium plants are also 'undercut' which involves pruning the roots 15cm below ground, this produces a larger root ball which is much quicker to establish. Premium hedging is more suitable for garden applications where a thick hedge is needed quickly.

For hedges 3-20ft (0.9-6m), plant 9-12ins (23-30cm) apart or for a denser or stock-proof hedge, plant in a staggered double row with 15ins (38cm) between rows and 19ins (45cm) between plants.

Could I plant these at the base of an old established hawthorn hedge to fill in the gaps? The current hedge is dense at the top but sparse at the bottom.

Hi Lisa Provided you are planting them on the side of the existing hedge with the most light they should do just fine Niall Quickcrop
