Forsythia Hedge Plants Description

Forsythia is a very tough and reliable hedging plant which forms a dense and strong hedge in sun or partial shade. The flowers appear before the leaves from mid March, the leaves are bright green and then develop a tinge of red before falling in Autumn. It can either be trimmed as a formal hedge or left slightly informal though it grows by upto 40cm pa so it does need a little maintenance to keep it looking tidy. Just cut back branches that have flowered soon after flowering and again in August and remove some of the old branches right down to the ground to encourage new growth and a compact shape. Forsythia likes a moist, but well drained soil.

You can see heaps more flowering plants in our flowering hedge plants section and for plants with incredible scents, take a look at our fantastic selection of fragrant hedging plants.

Pot grown plants are available all year round. Bare roots are only available from november to late April/early May.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed next to the products below. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section. Prices shown are the price per plant unless otherwise stated.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Forsythia should be trimmed in Spring after the blooms fade. Pruning in the late Summer will reduce the number of blooms the following year.
