This is a simple way to buy your hedging, plus you will benefit from savings as opposed to purchasing these items separately AND now with FREE ROOTGROW.

Hawthorn is a perfect species for those wishing to create a natural impenetrable hedge. Each pack contains Hawthorn plants and Rootgrow. Protection, in the form of spiral guards & bamboo canes, is included as part of the pack too.

Each pack consists of;

  • 40-60cm Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) plants.

  • Enough Rootgrow to adequately cover the number of plants.

  • Spiral guards (60cm x 38mm diameter).

  • Supporting bamboo canes (90cm x 12/14lbs).

The pack is available in quantities of;

  • 50 plants (which, if planting 5 to the metre, gives you 10 metres of hedging).

  • 100 plants (giving you approx. 20 metres of hedging).

  • 250 plants (giving you approx. 50 metres of hedging).

  • 500 plants (giving you approx. 100 metres of hedging).

  • 1000 plants (giving you approx. 200 metres of hedging).

We recommend that the hedgerow is planted in a double staggered row at five plants per metre as an average; however you can still plant at four or six per metre. The distance between the rows being approx. 30cm

Once the Hawthorn is planted, insert the cane into the ground and then place the spiral guard over the plant and cane. The only reason for the cane is to hold the spiral in place as this will not be supported by the plant.

Once a hawthorn hedge has been planted as you recommend, is it relatively easy to maintain their size at around 2 metres tall by regular pruning/trimming or is it recommended for larger hedges?

Thank you for your question

Yes you can maintain a hedge to your preferred height. Let it grow to the height you wish, then prune annually. We would recommend you do the pruning in the autumn. You may find that you need to prune more than once a year, but see how you go with once a year initially

Hope that helps, best wishes from the Trees and Hedging Team

Hi I'm hoping to make a start on developing some areas on my small holding over the next couple of years. I initially want to start planting an amount of hedging, then a wooded area and a seperate orchard. I'm a little concerned that several people have said to avoid certain species as they host carriers for apple tree diseases, like hawthorn and oak. Is this true or am I worrying too much?

Thank you for your question.

The advice from our Technical Support is as follows:-

“If the points they are thinking of is the susceptibility of Apple trees to apple scab, powdery mildew and Fire blight, all of which can be present on both Crataegus and Malus subjects, then there is wisdom in not planting hawthorn around an apple orchard. The powdery mildew that affects oaks so badly is not the same mildew that affects apples.”  

Hope this helps, regards the Trees and Hedging Team
