Hawthorn is the toughest hedge plant there is; it will grow pretty much anywhere from poor, dry, sandy soil near the coast, to wet, heavy clay that is prone to waterlogging. It is the standard plant for a farmer's country hedge: most British country hedgerows are 50-100% hawthorn.
Hawthorn trees have a bristly, rugged beauty and draw lots of wildlife into your garden, including nesting songbirds. Their dense, twiggy canopies aren't the most elegant in the world, but they make great screening, cast good shade and they are great for planting in front of taller trees as part of a windbreak belt.
I just wanted to send you a quick message to let you know how very impressed I am by the roses that I purchased in the spring. I've grown roses for many years, but the quality and number of blooms on those purchased from Ashridge have surpassed them all. Many thanks! Mrs M Kelly
