Edible Hedging Mix

This mixed hedge pack is a bundle of 50 plants that produce edible fruit and hazelnuts. You can order the same plants individually from their respective pages, but you will save money on the same size plants by buying this ready-made hedge pack. We will choose the plants that go into the hedge mix from the following list, occasionally the pack may change between the time of ordering and the time of despatch.: 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; take a look at the rest of our selection of hedging plants. Although we reserve the right to substitute any of the components of this mix, it will generally consist of:

  • 50% Cherry Plum
  • 20% Hazel
  • 10% each of Crabapple, Blackberry (may be thornless) and Wild Pear or Damson

These native plants will produce a good yield of fruit & nuts for eating fresh and making hedgerow jam. They will knit together to form a stock-friendly, dense barrier hedge, ideal for planting around an allotment. A productive edible hedge will never be a tidy, formal looking thing: it needs to be allowed to grow in order to produce a nice harvest.

Edible hedge packs are only delivered bareroot, during winter (October - April).

The plants in this pack will be 40-60 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 an Edible hedge:

If you want the hedge to be secure, plant 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. 
Because you will want these plants to bear lots of fruit, you can space them a bit further apart if security isn't an issue.

Each pack of 50 plants will make 16.5 metres of single row hedge and 10 metres of double row hedge.
