Prunus Domestica Hedging

The Wild Plum tree, Prunus domestica, makes a good country hedging plant.
Wild Plum will reach about 10 metres if it grows freely as a tree.
Browse our fruiting plum trees if you want to get a crop of fruit proper plums. Alternatively, see our selection of native hedging plants or view our full range of hedging.

Wild Plum hedge plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Spacing a Wild Plum hedge:
Plant Wild Plum hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.

General description of Wild Plum plants:
These bushy trees make ideal country hedging on any fertile soil, planted at the standard hedging rate of 3 per metre.
Clay soil is good except in very wet places.
Their fruit is edible raw or cooked and they can be planted as ground cover, one metre apart, to feed and shelter game animals and wild life each year. These wild plums are also called bullace or Prunus communis.
They are popular in the countryside when they are planted as a tall hedge, which is not trimmed every year and produces lots of wild plums.


Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
Bareroot and potted - what's the difference?
