These species have been selected to provide a long period of interest for humans (in flower, berries, leaf colour, leaf shape) as well as varying wildlife foods and shelter. Click to view bare root packs About cell grown mixed native packs Below the bare root packs you will find cell grown mixed native packs which are available all year round. The species mix is very similar. For packs of 100, the base is 40% Hawthorn or Blackthorn, and then the balance is 12% each of Blackthorn or Hawthorn (whichever is not the base) and Hazel, Field Maple, Bird Cherry and Dog Rose. For packs of 250 and 500, the mix is 50% Hawthorn or Blackthorn and 10% each of all the others. Cell grown plants can be used at any time of year other than in very hot dry weather.

We're happy to accommodate your own "pick and mix" selections which in previous years has been very popular with customers looking for 100% flowering hedges, or high security prickly hedging or an economy mix. Planting distances are very much a matter of choice - for bare roots, 3 plants per metre is adequate, 5 is good, 7 in a double staggered row will give a dense hedge quicker. Generally, smaller plants should be planted at higher density. Cell grown normal planting density is 4 in a single row or 6 in a double row. For pot grown, the ideal is 5 in a double staggered row but 4 or even 3 is adequate - so a pallet deal of 75 plants will do between 15 and 25 metres.
