What size Hawthorn trees should I buy?

  • If you are not in a hurry to get a full sized Hawthorn tree, we recommend starting with the smaller 6/8cm girth size.
  • If you are in a hurry and need instant impact, then go for the 8/10cm girth size.

Standard trees are measured by their girth 1 metre above the ground, and young saplings are measured by height.
Therefore, a 6/8cm Standard Hawthorn tree is much bigger than an 60/80cm sapling Hawthorn tree. If a tree is available in both sizes, it will be noted in the product descriptions.

For a Hawthorn hedge, use Crataegus monogyna: Britain's most widely used thorny country hedge plant - which also produce abundant, but simpler flowers.
