Delivery & Guarantee
Beech Hedging - Delivered in Bundles of 50 Large Plants with a 1 Year Guarantee
Our Beech hedging packs are bundles of 50 well branched plants in one of three sizes. You can order the same beech plants individually here, but if you need plants in multiples of approximately 50, you will save money on the same size plants by buying these hedge packs.
Green beech is a popular garden hedge plant that holds its autumn leaves through winter. These large, powerful plants are 3-4 years old, providing a near instant hedge at the lowest price.Beech hedging is tremendously versatile. It is an outstanding formal hedging plant and it will grow in almost any well drained soil. It prefers good light levels. If you make a mistake clipping beech hedging, it just grows back and it provides variety as it holds its golden brown dead foliage through the winter. However Beech is not suitable for damp, poorly drained and shady sites. You can buy packs of Hornbeam instead if your ground is not well drained or if the site is too dark for beech. You can browse all our beech hedging & trees for sale here.
Beech hedge plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (November - April). We generally recommend ordering the younger, 80-100 cms tall plants for starting a new hedge. Use larger plants if you are in a hurry to get a tall hedge. All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground.
Spacing a Beech hedge: Plant Beech hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart. You can also plant Beech 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.
Delivery: The basic delivery charge for orders of bareroot plants is £9.49 + vat, which increases to £12.55 + vat if you add any pot-grown plants, standard trees or fruit trees to the order. Because couriers sometimes experience delays, we schedule delivery by week, not by day. Therefore, please plan your planting day for the weekend at the end of the delivery week or for the week following delivery, at the earliest. You can choose the delivery week that suits you during checkout and we will email you the day before your plants are due to arrive.
Payment: We do not charge your card until we begin to prepare your order for packing.
Guarantee: If any plants die within a year, we will replace them. We only ask that you follow our planting & growing instructions and sent us clear photographs of the dead plants in situ, so we can help to make sure that the replacement plants succeed. You only pay for the delivery of the replacements.
Please note that our guarantee is void if there is a hosepipe ban in your area: your newly planted hedging must be watered in dry weather while it is establishing. The best way to water is very thoroughly every few days: at least once a week if there is no heavy rain.
Our nursery has been supplying container grown and bareroot hedging plants to gardeners, farmers and town planners since 1949. Our website started in 2003, so we do understand the concerns that you may have about buying hedging plants online. If any of your plants are damaged when they arrive or if you are otherwise not satisfied with your order after you inspect it, please repackage it and contact us. We will give you a refund or send replacements and send a courier to come and collect the unwanted plants.
