Our Beech hedging packs are bundles of 50 well-branched plants in one of three sizes. You can also see our complete range of beech hedging plants where you can order the same sizes individually as well as looking at our copper beech. However, if you need plants in multiples of approximately 50, this is the right place to be as you will save money by buying these discounted packs.
Green beech is a popular garden hedge plant that holds its autumn leaves through winter. These large, powerful plants are 3-4 years old, providing a near-instant hedge at the lowest price. Beech hedging is tremendously versatile. It is an outstanding formal hedging plant and it will grow in almost any well-drained soil. It prefers good light levels. If you make a mistake clipping beech hedging, it just grows back and it provides variety as it holds its golden brown dead foliage through the winter. However, Beech is not suitable for damp, poorly drained and shady sites. You can buy packs of Hornbeam instead if your ground is not well drained or if the site is too dark for beech.
Beech hedge plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (November - April). We generally recommend ordering the younger, 80-100 cms tall plants for starting a new hedge. Use larger plants if you are in a hurry to get a tall hedge. All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground.
Spacing a Beech hedge:
Plant Beech hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.
You can also plant Beech at 5 plants per metre in a staggered double row, with 33 cms between each plant along the row and 40cms between the rows.
Each pack of 50 plants will make 16.5 metres of single row hedge and 10 metres of double row hedge. If Beech is not for you then have a look at our full range of hedging.
