This mixed native hedging pack is an economy bundle of 250 smaller plants, 40- 60cm tall. It is the cheapest way to buy country hedging..

We will choose the plants that go into the hedge mix from the following list: we regret that we cannot accept requests for specific plants to be used in your pack and the pack may change between the time of ordering and the time of despatch. If you want to be certain of having a particular plant in your hedge mix, please order it separately.

This pack is made up of tough native plants that will grow almost anywhere. It is good for supporting wildlife. More than half the plants in each bundle will be thorny.
You can buy larger conservation hedge plants in our packs of 50 native hedging plants. These packs of 50 plants are both larger and more diverse: they are made up of 50% Hawthorn and 5 other native species.
If you are planting a hedge to contain farm animals, we recommend our stock-friendly mix.

Conservation hedge packs are only delivered bareroot, during winter (November - March).
The plants in this pack will be 40-60cm tall when we deliver them. All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Please note: when you receive our mixed hedging packs, they will not be already mixed and will be bunched by plant species. Please remember to mix them for best results.

Spacing a Country hedge:

You can plant country hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cm apart.

Each pack of 250 plants will make 83 metres of single row hedge and 41 metres of double row hedge.

Planting Instructions

Growing Native hedges:
Conservation hedging will grow well in pretty much any conditions. Decent soil drainage is preferable, but these plants will cope with occasional waterlogging. Most of these plants are happy in partial shade.

Prepare your site before planting:
The native hedge plants in this Conservation mix are very tough. The only essential preparation is to kill the weeds in a strip a metre wide along the planting site: improving the soil should not be necessary. If your soil is exceptionally poor and dry, then digging in some well rotted manure and/or compost is worthwhile.

Watch our video on how to plant a country hedge for full details.
Remember to water establishing plants during dry weather for at least a year after planting.

Hedge Planting Accessories:
Prepare your site for planting by killing the weeds and grass.
You can buy a hedge planting pack with sheets of mulch fabric and pegs to hold it down.
If you are planting in an area with rabbit and/or deer, you will need to use a plastic spiral guard for each plant, supported by a bamboo cane.
If your soil quality is poor, we recommend using mycorrhizal "friendly fungi" on the roots of new trees and shrubs.
You can also improve your soil with bonemeal organic fertiliser and Growmore.

After you plant a hedge, the most important thing to do is water it in dry weather. If you didn't use mulch of some kind, you will also need to weed around the hedge. Both of these will be necessary for at least a year after planting.

Trimming Country hedge plants: Native hedging plants benefit from being cut back hard right after planting, as shown in the country hedge planting video. In the following years, your young hedge should be trimmed lightly once in winter, until it is mature. When it is fully grown, you can clip it at anytime.

Special notes on caring for Conservation hedges:
These are very tough plants that shouldn't need special attention once they have established. If you didn't use a mulch fabric, it is beneficial to mulch around the base of the hedge each year with well rotted manure or compost.

Hygiene & Diseases:
Dead, damaged or diseased wood can be pruned off as soon as it appears.
Disinfect your pruning tools between every cut if there is any sign of disease.
Burn or dispose of any diseased material, do not compost it.
