Size & Rootstock

Dispatched from late October until Mid February

Hawthorn (Crataegus Monogyna) is a fast growing, thorny tree that is ideal for garden or hedging. Hawthorn is a native deciduous hedge that provides an important habitat for wildlife. The dark green, glossy leaves are one of the first to come in the Spring followed by clusters of scented white flowers. Hawthorn are also notable for their beautiful red hips or haws in Autumn which are an key food source for birds.

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.

Hi, we’d like to get some of this hedging and perhaps mix it with your edible hedging. Do you have an idea of when you will be lifting the roots? Thanks great site.

How far apart should this be planted
Answered by Niall

Hi Peter If you want the hedging to thicken up quickly however not grow as high you should plant about 2ft apart. For a higher hedge that will take a bit longer to come on go to 3ft apart Niall Quickcrop
