Hedge mixes

Since the second world war, hedgerows have been removed at a much faster rate than they have been planted. This is due in part to making space for larger vehicles and mechanisms often used in modern farming. Hedgerow removal has been identified as a factor in the decline of many plant and animal species which benefit from the habitat and source of food these plants created. To give these creatures a helping hand, we have developed three hedge mixes.

Mammals, insects and birds all love the shrubs in these mixes as they provide food and shelter. A hedge can also create a natural screen to block unattractive views, create a shelter from the wind and even help reduce noise levels. 

You can choose from the following hedge packs, with either 15 (3m) or 30 (6m) trees per pack:

Standard hedge mix:

  • Pack of 15 -3 x Hawthorn, 3 x Hazel, 3 x Crab Apple,  3 x Dog Rose and 3 x Dogwood
  • Pack of 30 - 6 x Hawthorn, 6 x Hazel, 6 x Crab Apple, 6 x Dog Rose and 6 x Dogwood

Traditional hedge mix:

  • Pack of 15 - 8 x Hawthorn, 4 x Blackthorn, 3 x Dog Rose
  • Pack of 30 - 15 x Hawthorn, 9 x Blackthorn, 6 x Dog Rose

Horse and livestock-friendly hedge mix:

  • Pack of 15 - 9 x Hawthorn, 2 x Hazel, 1 x Field Maple 1 x Dogwood, 1 x Dog rose, 1 x Silver birch
  • Pack of 30 - 18 x Hawthorn, 3 x Hazel, 3 x Field Maple, 3 x Dogwood, 2 x Dog rose, 1 x Silver birch. These are non-toxic to horses and livestock.

Estimated full-grown height: 

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

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.

Free delivery is available for all tree orders and your trees will be delivered within 10 working days. You will receive a cell grown sapling, ranging from approximately 15cm-60cm in height. Orders comprising of more than 900 trees may take longer than the standard 10-day delivery window.

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

If you are purchasing more than one pack of trees or any of our tree accessories, they may be delivered separately to one another. 

We would recommend that hedging plants be planted around 30cm apart to produce asingle row. For a thick hedge, plant in two rows with equal staggering of 50cm between saplings and 40cm between rows.

Please consider 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 from mammals, particularly rabbits, deer etc. You will find these within our accessories section.

Oct - Feb - This is the best time of year for planting trees. Your saplings are dormant and if kept free from frost and wind as well as 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. You can find out more about how to care for your trees on our page dedicated to helping trees thrive long-term.
