Native Hedging: Top Ten Country Hits

Almost any plant, provided it is woody and does not mind a bit of competition and being cut back occasionally can be used in a country hedge. But that does not make it a great native hedging plant. I have, honestly, seen a hedge made entirely from Ash. Interesting idea, but utterly useless.

Here are my top ten native hedging plants:

  1. Hawthorn - Crataegus monogyna
  2. Blackthorn - Prunus Spinosa
  3. Field Maple - Acer campestre
  4. Hazel - Corylus avellana
  5. Dog Rose - Rosa canina
  6. Spindleberry - Euonymus europeaus
  7. Guelder Rose - Viburnum opulus
  8. Common Alder - Alnus glutinosa
  9. Dogwood - Cornus sanguinea
  10. Cherry Plum - Prunus cerasifera

All of these hedge plants are available on our site (naturally)

Relax and watch your plants grow!
