White flowers blossom early in the year & are followed by sloes in the autumn for October-November harvesting.  To obtain a thick hedge we advise you to plant 5-7 plants per metre.

Hawthorn(Quickthorn) Crataegus Monogyna: Hawthorn is a traditional, fast-growing, thorny, native hedge which produces scented white flowers followed by red haws in the autumn. The hedge becomes very thick and dense in a short period of time, hence the name.  Hawthorn is a very hardy hedge & is useful in coastal areas & exposed sites. Will also tolerate damp areas.To obtain a thick hedge we advise you to plant 5-7 plants per metre.

Field Maple Acer campestre hedge plants are a native species and the UK’s only native Maple. Field Maple is known for its large lobed, mid-green foliage which turns buttery yellow in autumn just before the winged seed pods release. A fast-growing hedging plant, Field Maple is popularly grown in a Native Mix, though looks equally as attractive when grown alone.

Hazel Corylus Avellana: Hazel is a large, fast growing hedge which produces long, yellow catkins followed by edible nuts in the autumn. Hazel tolerates shade & windy/exposed sites, & will grow in moist soils. Ideal to plant with Thorn.  To obtain a thick hedge we advise you to plant 7 plants per metre.

Beech Fagus Sylvatica: Beech is a slow-growing, native but dense hedge which offers superb foliage all though winter.It is deciduous but if trimmed annually in August the leaves will usually be retained in a dry state throughout most of the winter. Beech tolerates most soils except heavy clay. Copper Beech is best planted in full sun to retain the colour. Beech is best planted in sheltered sites, away from frost pockets. To obtain a thick hedge we advise you to plant 7 plants per metre.

Privet Ligustrum:  Privet is a traditional, evergreen hedge which bears glossy foliage. Privet will tolerate most soil types apart from wet locations. Ideal as a screen for privacy or as a windbreak. We advise you to plant 5 plants to the metre.

Rosa Rugosa: Rosa Rugosa is a rapid growing, dense, deciduous and prickly hedge which produces highly scented pink, white or red flowers in the summer, followed by hips. Rosa Rugosa will grow in most soils apart from waterlogged areas. An ideal hedging plant for coastal areas. Ideal to prevent unwanted visitors in the garden.

Norway Spruce Picea abies: Norway Spruce is a traditional christmas tree & forms a fast-growing, evergreen hedge which thrives in many soil types, especially acidic soils. Norway Spruce is suitable for windy/exposed sites but is not suitable for coastal & waterlogged areas.

Hornbeam Carpinus Betulus: Hornbeam is a hardy, native, semi-evergreen hedging plant. It is similar to Beech however it tolerates poor soils & exposed sites better than Beech. Hornbeam is suitable for wet & clay soils but it is not suitable for coastal areas.

Crab Apple Malus: Malus produces a colourful hedge – pink flowers emerge from red buds in the spring & crab apples appear in the autumn. Malus is a native, hardy, deciduous hedge & will tolerate dry & exposed areas. Best grown in full sun.

Alder Alnus Glutinosa: Alder is a fast-growing, native, deciduous hedge which bears glossy leaves followed by woody cones in the autumn. Alder grows best in moist/wet soils & will tolerate all soil types except from very chalky soil. Grows well in coastal areas. Alder keeps its leaves quite late, often until November.

Silver Birch Betula Pendula: A fast-growing, native, deciduous hedge. Silver Birch prefers light, free-draining soil & copes well in exposed sites.

Sea Buckthorn Hippophae: A fast-growing, native, deciduous, thorny plant which thrives by the sea. Hippophae is suitable for shady, dry & exposed areas. It produces masses of orange berries in the autumn suitable for making marmalade.

Oak Quercus: Oak makes an excellent hedge especially in coastal areas. Oak provides a good windbreak but it is not suitable for cold, inland areas.

Wild cherry prunus avium: Wild Cherry hedging are one of the most ornamental of our native hedging species. With masses of white flowers from early spring followed by red cherries which are popular with the birds and then wonderful autumnal colour, Prunus avium is an attractive native shrub or can be allowed to grow as a hedgerow tree.

Elder sambucus nigra: Elder hedging, Sambus Nigra, or Elderberry is a very familiar shrub or small tree commonly found in gardens and native hedgerows. Sambucus nigra is more often found near farms as it prefers a nitrogen rich soil and so tends to grow near sites of organic waste as well as chalky soils and coastal sights. Growing at a rate of up to 60cm per year it will provide a dense hedge very quickly up to about 5 metres high. We would recommend 2-3 plants per metre.
