Size & Rootstock

Distributed from late October to late February annually

Cotoneaster does a fantastic job as a screening hedge with its dense foliage giving you good privacy in an attractive hedge. It is tough and hardy and, being evergreen, provides year long protection from its vibrant leaves and their deep green, slightly shiny hue.

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.

Could they be used to replace intermittent privet hedging which has become patchy. How far apart should they be planted. What are their soil requirements and do they require sunny or shady conditions? Thank you
