Hornbeam Hedging (Carpinus betulus) description

Hornbeam hedging plants

From 1.99 | In Stock | Go straight to hedging sizes and prices below >

Hornbeam is very similar to Beech (Fagus sylvatica) in appearance but its leaves have deeper veins. Carpinus Betulus hedging tolerates poor soils and exposed sites better than Beech. It is a hardy, native, semi evergreen (holding its leaves through winter although it does tend to lose more leaves than Beech), with green catkins in late spring through to autumn, turning to fruit suitable for wildlife - see our other reccomended native suggestions. Hornbeam's winter appearance is very similar to Beech with copper coloured leaves but they aren't quite as bright in colour, more of a brown/grey compared to the orange/brown of Fagus sylvatica leaves

Ideal for heights of up to 5 metres, Hornbeam makes the perfect hedge for keeping out noise and wind, as well as providing a fantastic privacy screen. Not only a good option if you are looking for privacy, Hornbeam excells in poorer conditions so if you planting with limitations such as shade, clay/wet soils or windy sites then Carpinus betulus may be the right hedge for you. Another use of Hornbeam hedging is within mixed native packs, because while it makes an exceptional single species hedge it also shines when combined with other species. Hornbeam is available in all root types and can be purchased as cell grown, pot grown, bare roots, root balls and instant hedging.

Additional information for Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) hedge

Hornbeam spacing

Prices shown are the price per plant. 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 should be planted at 4 per metre in a single row or ideally 6 per metre in a staggered row. Density for pot grown is as shown (varies by pot size). See also our Advice section on Planting Density on the right hand side of our website.



Hornbeam pruning

It is easy to keep Hornbeam to a neat formal shape, or it is often a component in an informal mixed native hedge because it's coppery leaves are kept on the plant and they provide some winter wildlife cover. Clip once a year in late summer (this is important to help the plant retain its winter colour)..



Hornbeam growth rate

Hornbeam will grow approximately 20-40cm per year, once established and well cared for and ideal for hedges 1.5m - 5m tall



Hornbeam uses

Hornbeam makes an excellent privacy hedge and provides a great way of reducing noise and wind. Hornbeam likes sun but is shade tolerant and particularly suitable for clay/wet soils. Carpinus Betulus is not suitable for coastal positions.



Hornbeam availability

Cell grown, pot grown and instant hedging plants are available all year round. Bare roots are only available from November to mid/late May, using cold stored plants towards the very end of the season (see our blog on cold storage)

<h4><u>Hornbeam alternatives</u></h4>
<a name="hornbeam-alternatives" id="hornbeam-alternatives"></a>
Hornbeam is often considered to be very similiar to <a href="/acatalog/beech_fagus_hedging.html">Beech hedging,</a> but has a deeper vein within the leaves. Hornbeam is the hardier option but if you are planting in good conditions Beech retains its leaves slightly better in winter.
