Thornless Hedge Mix | Packs of 50 Plants
- Delivery & Guarantee
This mixed hedge pack is a bundle of 50 thornless, native plants that are safe to plant around young children or along public footpaths and rights of way. You can order the same plants individually from their respective pages, but you will save money on the same size plants by buying the hedge pack.
We will choose the plants that go into the hedge mix from the following list: we regret that we cannot accept requests for specific plan s to be used in your pack. If you want to be certain of having a particular plant in your hedge mix, please order it separately. Plants are not restricted to those listed but are usually chosen from:
These plants are all thorn-free (Guelder rose is not a real rose) and mostly non-toxic; Spindle berries aren't edible, but they taste too bitter to chew or swallow. This mix of rugged, native plants is great for bio diversity, providing plenty of food for birds, small animals and butterfly caterpillars.
If you want a thorny, secure hedge that is safe for large farm animals and horses, have a look at our Stock friendly hedge mix.
Thornless hedge packs are only delivered bareroot, during winter (November - March).
The plants in this pack will be 60-80 cms tall when we deliver them. All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).
Spacing a Thornless hedge:
Plant Thornless hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.
You can also plant Thornless 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.
