Product Details

Blackthorn is fast growing and forms a hedge with lots of tiny twigs and branches which provide support to other trees and plants. It makes a super natural habitat for birds, insects and small mammals. It is also extremely spiky so is always included in security hedging.

Blackthorn also makes a beautiful small stand-alone tree and can grow to about 4m tall. It is fast growing. We recommend that you trim your blackthorn once a year in Autumn after the birds have finished nesting.

Simply choose the height of the plants you want to plant now and the number of plants you need. We recommend 5 plants per metre in a double zig-zag row for a thick hedge, but you can get away with 3-4 per metre in a staggered row if you don’t mind waiting an extra year or two to form a thick hedge.

Keep them well watered – especially in the Spring and Summer in the first year of planting. If you are not sure how many plants you need or which varieties suit your garden please just contact or call us and we will be happy to offer friendly advice!

For best results plant with Rootgrow gel – it increases the growth rate by up to 50% and really helps the plants establish!

Many apologies but due to a change in the DEFRA plant health regulations following Brexit we cannot ship plants to Northern Ireland – we are working on this and hope a solution is found soon!
