Size & Rootstock

Distribution from mid November until Mid February annually

The Common Beech is very popular as a standalone specimen and make great alternatives to fences or walls when grown as hedges. They are majestic looking, with thick branches and smooth grey bark. It’s has large glossy green leaves and small flowers, as well as producing nuts that ripen in the autumn and attract plenty of small animals. They will grow perfectly well in either sun or partial shade and thrive on almost any well-drained soil. Common Beech forms a fantastically dense windbreak hedge.

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.

Hello there. Considering these, whether standard or premium, would both be starting at 15cm when planted, what would I expect them to grow each year? Trying to calculate how long it would take to reach a desired height of 2m. While, I'm at it, I might also ask the growth rates of the Hornbeam within the first few years. Thanks.

Hi Daniel The advantage of the Premium is that it is already a year ahead of the standard so it stands a good bit taller once planted. Beech will grow about 2 foot a year. Hornbeam about 3ft a year. Niall Quickcrop

We have 60ft we want to plant with Beech hedging. How many plants will I need or would the pack of 25 (as you sell them) be enough?
Answered by Niall
on November 23rd, 2020
Hi Lorraine The 25 in a pack will be enough. Essentially you plant the hedging needs to be planted roughly 3ft (1m) apart however you can plant them slightly closer which will give you a thicker hedge and one that grows faster but not as high. Niall Quickcrop

We have an old beech hedge that is now thin in places. It’s leaves turn brown in winter. Can I use your plants to fill the gaps or is this a different variety to mine?
Answered by Niall
on October 21st, 2020
Hi Peter It should be the same so no issue there Niall Quickcrop

I need to infill some gaps in a five year old beech hedge. Is it really too late to get bare root plants in now?
Answered by Niall
on March 26th, 2020
No Ian. You can still put them in but getting tight Niall Quickcrop
Asked By Hugh Robinson
on October 18th, 2019
How far apart should these be planted, how long a single hedges would 65 plants make. Would they be better in a double row?
Answered by Niall
on October 18th, 2019
Hi Hugh Normally we suggest a spacing of 2 foot apart which will give a strong thick hedge. That said if you go out to 3ft you will get wider and higher growth which some people prefer. If you space them closer at 2ft there is no need for a double row so you should get a run of about 130ft or more. Niall Quickcrop

How big do they come please
Answered by Megan
on February 20th, 2019
Hi Rachel - these come in Agri 60-80cm and Garden 80-100cm. The larger one will establish much faster due to the way they were initially grown. Thanks, Meg - Quickcrop
Asked By Rachel

How far apart for hedging please trying to work out how many we need
Answered by Megan
on February 20th, 2019
Hi Rachel - this would depend on how dense a hedge you require, but we recommend between a foot and a half to four foot. Thanks, Meg - Quickcrop
