Hornbeam Hedging Mix

These Common Hornbeam hedge packs are economy bundles of 50 large plants. You can order the same hornbeam plants individually and in smaller sizes here, but you will save money on the same size plants by buying the hedge packs above.

The big sizes on this page will give you immediate impact, and a better hedge in the short term, compared to the smaller sizes. The smaller plants that we deliver tend to have a racing start, and they more or less catch up to bigger ones (which will be clipped earlier) after some years, maybe twelve or so. So, if time is on your side and you prefer to spend less, pick our smallest hornbeam hedge 'whips'.

Hornbeam, Carpinus betulus, is a neat garden hedge plant that tolerates damp, shady sites. It is often planted as an alternative to beech, which won't grow on poorly drained soil. Read more about Hornbeam VS Beech here.
You can also buy larger Hornbeam trees here.

Hornbeam hedge packs are only delivered bareroot, during winter (November - March). 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 (the roots aren't measured).

Spacing a Hornbeam hedge:

Plant Common Hornbeam hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.
You can also plant Common Hornbeam 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.

Carpinus betulus is known as European Hornbeam; it's native from here to Iran. Our plants are grown in the UK from British stock.
