These are fantastic quality Hornbeam Hedging Plants (Carpinus)
Hornbeam makes a lovely hedge and is similar to Beech distinguished only by the serrated leaf. Like Beech there is a lovely change of colour in the autumn and the russet coloured leaves are retained on the plant through the winter. Hornbeam will quickly grow to 6ft or more – Trim regularly to make the hedge dense.
Hornbeam can be grown in all soil types, in sun or partial shade!
Like all bare root plants, hornbeam can only be supplied during the dormant planting season which runs from the end of October to the end of March but may be ordered at any time of year to ensure your supply as we may run short of some plants if demand outstrips supply.
Customers in rural areas may wish to protect their plants from rabbits. Please see our section on rabbit guards.
We highly recommend planting with Rootgrow Mycorrhizal gel to ensure that your plants have the best start in life. Rootgrow helps establish a good root system so that your plants are able to absorb all the water and nutrients they need.
We will send you our FREE guide to hedge planting with your order confirmation or this can also be downloaded from our home page.
How to plant:
We recommend that you plant in a single or staggered row at the rate of 5 per metre so just order the number of packs you need for the hedge length you are after!
Many apologies but due to a change in plant health law following Brexit, we are currently unable to ship to Northern Ireland. We are working on this and hope to find a solution soon!
