Coastal Hedge Plants (Pack of 50)
Coastal Hedging Mix
This mixed hedge pack is a bundle of 50 plants, suitable for the seaside. You can order the same plants individually from their respective pages, but you will save money on the same size plants by buying the hedge pack.
We will choose the plants that go into the hedge mix from a list of the following plants: we regret that we cannot accept requests for specific plants to be used in your pack. If you want to be certain of having a particular plant in your hedge mix, please order it separately.
- 30% Hawthorn.
- 20% Blackthorn.
- 10% each of 5 plants selected from: Cotoneaster, Elaeagnus, Tamarisk, Sea Buckthorn, Dog Rose, or Wild Privet.
These plants will handle strong maritime winds and salty air. They won't grow in pure sand dunes right on the shore, but they will thrive in the dry, poor soils that are found in coastal regions. Several of the plants in the mix will have thorns.
Coastal hedge packs are only delivered bareroot, during winter (November - March).
The plants in this pack will be 50-80 cms tall when we deliver them. All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).
Spacing a Coastal hedge:
Plant Coastal hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.
You can also plant Coastal 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.
