Hedge mixes

Hedges are essential wildlife corridors, connecting woodland and other important habitats. They help hedgehogs and dormice stay on the move and are a vital food source for insects, birds and other mammals. Hedge laying can also create a natural screen to block unattractive views, establish privacy and form a shelter from the wind or help reduce noise levels.

You can choose from the following hedge packs, with either 15 or 30 trees per pack.

  •        Standard hedge mix: Hawthorn, Hazel, Crab apple, Dog rose and Dogwood.
  •        Traditional hedge mix: Hawthorn, Blackthorn, Dog rose and Field maple.
  •        Horse and livestock-friendly hedge mix: Hawthorn, Hazel, Field maple, Dogwood, Dog rose and Silver birch which are non-toxic to horses and livestock.

Estimated full-grown height: 

Hawthorn: 15m, Hazel: 10m+, Field maple: 20m, Dogwood: 10m, Dog rose: 1.5m, Silver birch: 15-20m, Blackthorn: 6-7m, Crab apple: 7-9m.

Purchase size and growth: 

These trees are cell-grown saplings, ranging from approximately 15cm-60cm in height. Cell grown trees can be planted all year round in most situations as long as they are given the correct care. Please be aware that depending on the time of year you receive your saplings (particularly early spring) they may not look very perky upon arrival, but once they have been planted they should pick up quickly.

UK & Ireland Sourced and Grown (UKISG): 

Every sapling we provide is UK and Ireland Sourced and Grown to minimise the risk of importing and spreading tree pests and diseases. Seeds are collected and stored in the UK and Ireland, and they are all coded and batched so that we can track each individual tree.

More information about the trees in this mix is available in our A-Z guide to British trees.

Please note spirals and canes are not included within these packs. Purchase spirals and canes separately in our accessories section.

Delivery information: 

Free delivery is available for all tree orders but please allow up to 7-10 days for your delivery to arrive. You will receive a cell grown sapling, ranging from approximately 15cm-60cm in height. Please be aware that depending upon the time of year you receive your sapling (particularly early spring) it may not look very perky upon arrival, please do not worry once it has been planted it should pick up quickly. 

Please note that recent changes to regulations mean we are, unfortunately, currently unable to ship our trees to Northern Ireland. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Planting information: We would recommend that hedging plants be planted around 30cm apart if creating a single row hedge or for a thick hedge, plant staggered double rows around 50cm apart with 40cm between the lines. 

Please take into account the final size of the trees and be aware of buildings, services and other plants nearby to ensure that damage cannot occur from the roots and canopy as the trees grow.

We would recommend that you also buy spirals and canes or tubes and stakes if there is any chance of animal damage (rabbits, deer etc.). You will find these within our accessories section.

Oct - Feb - This is the best time of year for planting trees and your saplings are dormant, as long as they are kept free from frost and wind as well as being kept moist and in light conditions then they will last a few weeks before planting. 

March - Sept - Your saplings are growing fast and will need planting as soon as possible. Planting immediately will ensure they do not dry out, lose nutrients etc.

On-going care requirements: Once planted, your trees will need some care and attention for a few years; this will mainly be weeding around the base to reduce the competition for nutrients and ensuring your tree has enough water. For more information about caring for your trees, click here.
