Mixed Native Instant Hedging Description
The hedging species that make up these mixed native instant hedging troughs are ideal for paddocks, fields and gardens, with no plants that are poisonous to livestock and a range of species that provide year round interest and a diverse habitat for wildlife. They are ideal if you are looking for a native mix and an established looking hedge immediately on planting. The developed root system and density of growth ensure that the hedge looks full and will establish swiftly in its new location.
Mixed Native Instant Hedging troughs are available all year round. Please note that as the species' that make up the trough are almost all deciduous, full leaf cover will usually only be present in season.
The troughs will be approximately 50% Hawthorn with a mix of three other native species from the following list: Field Maple, Plum Cherry, Hazel, Blackthorn, Crab Apple, Privet, Dogwood, Rowan, Holly and Spindle. 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 habitat.
If instant hedging troughs are not exactly what you are looking for and you would like to look other mixed native hedging options, we have a range of mixed native hedging packs that can be found by clicking HERE.
Plant the troughs every metre adjacent to each other to provide an instant seamless hedge. Water well on planting and use feed to help the existing root system to adjust and establish to the new surroundings.
General hedge trimming should be done twice a year, lare Winter and early Spring. It is important to prune at the right time, so as not to remove new growing shoots. Do not prune in nesting months.
