Native Thornless Hedge Plants
Thornless Hedging Mix
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. The mix is made up of 20% of each of five varieties. 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 biodiversity, 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.
