Native Conservation Hedge Plants
Mixed Native Conservation Hedging Mix
This mixed native hedging pack is a bundle of 50 plants, ideal for general purpose country hedges. It is approved for grant-aided planting.
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 the following list: 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.
PLEASE NOTE: You will recall last summer was one of the hottest and driest for many years. One of the casualties of this weather was hawthorn growth and crops struggled to make the larger grades. So please note that although we show a size 60/80 cms, some plants may well be smaller than this. This will have no effect on future growth or hedge size as newly planted hawthorn (as with all native hedging) should be cut back by half immediately after planting anyway. The plants are strong and healthy and covered by our guarantee.
- 50% Hawthorn
- 10% each of 5 other native species (chosen by us): Blackthorn, Crab Apple, Dog Rose, Common Dogwood or Red Dogwood, Field Maple, Guelder Rose, Hazel, Spindle, Sweet Briar Rose or Wayfaring Tree.
This pack is made up of tough native plants that will grow almost anywhere. It is perfect for supporting wildlife and increasing bio diversity. More than half the plants in each bundle will be thorny.
You can save even more money with our economy packs of 250 native hedging whips.
If you are planting a hedge to contain farm animals, we recommend our stock-friendly mix.
Conservation hedge packs are only delivered bareroot, during winter (November - March).
The plants in this pack will be either 60-80cms or 90/120cms tall when we deliver them. All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).
For most projects, we recommend using the smaller, 60-80cms size hedge pack. Use the larger plants if you are in a hurry to get a mature hedge.
Spacing a Conservation hedge:
Plant Conservation hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.
You can also plant 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.
