This is for a variety of fantastic quality Hedgerow plants that can be planted around horse fields – Please visit each plant’s individual page on our site for a full breakdown of their details and qualities.
This is for our best value mixed hedgerow consisting of at least four of the most popular species from the official ‘list of safe plants for horses’: Hawthorn, Blackthorn, Hazel and Elder. All you need to do is choose how many plants you need and the size you are after!
The mix of plants we will send will depend partly on the length of hedge you choose but will consist of 50% Hawthorn and then a mix of the other species! Where we can we will add in some other native species on orders for more than 100 plants, including: Silver birch, Poplar and Willow
The Plants do not require particularly good soil and will quickly make a dense hedge which is easy to maintain from 3ft upwards. Each plant will grow approximately 25cm each year given average conditions and can be planted in full or partial shade.
This listing is specifically for forming a safe hedge for horses. If you do not have or are likely to be forming a hedge where horses will be in the local vicinity and would like a broader range of plants for a hedgerow, please see our other listings such as the ‘Best Value’ pack.
Like all bare root plants, they 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 some varieties may sell out if demand outstrips supply. You may wish to protect your plants from rabbits. Please see our section on rabbit guards.
We highly recommend planting with Rootgrow mycorrhizal fungus as this significantly improves the plant’s ability to absorb moisture and nutrients from the soil leading to the best growth possible for your plant – please browse our shop to find more fantastic options available for hedges or call us on 01420 768 242 for recommendations
For more information on how to plant and manage your hedge plants look out for your FREE guide to hedge planting which will be emailed with your order confirmation or which 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!
