Rosa canina hedge plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Spacing a Rosa canina hedge:
Plant Rosa canina hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.
You can also plant Rosa canina at 5 plants per metre in a staggered double row, with 33 cms between each plant along the row and 40cms between the rows.

General description of Rosa canina plants:
The Dog Rose, Rosa canina, is a fast growing native rose with a thicket of prickly stems that make a great secure hedge. It carries clusters of single, scented pale pink flowers in summer and small red hips in autumn that attract birds.
It is best in mixed hedges, usually interplanted with hawthorn to help give it structure. We usually use it in our conservation hedge packs.
Dog rose bushes by themselves usually won't get much bigger than 1.5 metres, but when they are pushed up against other plants in a hedge, they will reach 3 metres.
