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.

The wildlife hedgerow pack is made up predominantly of Hawthorn, alongside the addition of a variety of mixed native species to add colour and interest to your hedgerow whilst providing the perfect habitat to attract wildlife and insects.

Each pack contains plants and Rootgrow. Protection, in the form of spiral guards & bamboo canes, can be purchased as part of the pack too.

Each pack consists of;

  • 70% 40-60cm Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) plants.

  • 30% mixed species to include Blackthorn, Field Maple, Hazel, Dogwood and Dog Rose.

  • Enough Rootgrow to adequately cover the number of plants.

N.B. The mixed species may vary due to availability and could be substituted for other suitable native bare root species such as Spindleberry, Guelder Rose and Buckthorn.

Packs with plant protection also include:

  • 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).

It is personal preference of how to mix the species within this hedge. You can either plant the mixed species in blocks to create more impact for that particular species or alternatively mix them up to create a more natural effect.

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 and mixed species are 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.

Can you tell me how old the plants are please and if they are native grown? Many thanks.

Good morning,

Thank you for your question.

I can confirm the stock in the Wildlife Hedgerow Pack is 1 year old and is all UK grown. 

Thank you once again.

The Trees and Hedging Team. 

Looking at the question re risk to apple trees - what distance from an orchard would be "safe" ? Is 200m sufficient ? Also, what expectations should one have in terms of growth ? IE Height at 3 years ? Height at 5 years ?

Good afternoon,

Thank you for your question.

I would suggest that planting at that distance from the orchard will be fine.

In terms of growth, we would expect the following (if well maintained and in ideal conditions):

3 years - 1.5m

5 years 2m.

I hope this helps, and please do not hesitate to come back to us with any further questions you may have.

Hi, is the wildlife hedgerow pack safe to plant as a boundary around a horse field as there are many plants which are poisonous to horses if eaten? Thanks

Good morning,

Thank you for your enquiry.

Of the species within the Wildlife Hedgerow Pack all are safe exluding Filed maple and Dog Rose.  

If you are happy for us to replace these with species that are safe (say Guelder rose) we will be happy to do so.

If so please just indictae this in the notes section of the order.

Many thanks,

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
