Product Information

A hedging plant native to the UK, perfect for adding much sought-after privacy to the garden.

Changing shades can be seen throughout the months, beginning with bright green foliage in the springtime, before fading slightly when summer rolls around, followed by a seasonal mix of copper, orange, bronze, and brown shades from early autumn.

Most of the leaves will be retained during the winter months to offer privacy, before shedding to make way for new growth in spring.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant out in the garden with confidence.

Prune this semi-evergreen, dense, and tidy hedge in August to enjoy cover for a longer period than other varieties, while it can be grown to more-or-less any height to fit the required space. 

Growing at a good rate of 30-60cm every year, Beech hedges perform well in most soil types, in either a sunny or part-shaded area of the garden.

Supplied as a bare root hedge, 60-90cm tall, ready for planting.

Top Tips

For best performance, plant bare root hedges in the winter.

Care Information

On Arrival:

  • When your bare root hedges arrive, be sure to place them upright in a bucket of clean water as soon as possible for a minimum of two hours. 
  • Only remove the plants from the water when you go to plant them, to ensure the roots are wet when planted and avoiding the chance of them drying out. 
  • If you are not ready to immediately plant your bare roots when they arrive, they can be stored in a sheltered space, such as a shed, for up to a week. Just be sure to open the package they arrive in and keep the roots moist.

Planting:

  • Where possible, plant in well-drained, good-quality soil in a sunny or partially shaded space in the garden for best performance. 
  • Trim the roots slightly before planting, as this will encourage healthier growth. 
  • Dig a trenched hole in the ground in the shape of a ‘V’, deep enough for the bare root to sit comfortably so the ‘tide mark’ of the root is level with the ground. This marks the level where the bare root was previously planted before lifting for delivery.
  • Ensure the roots are completely covered in soil, then firm the soil around, as water will gather in any remaining air pockets and potentially damage the roots when it freezes.
  • Water immediately after planting, then again whenever there are three or more days of continuous dry weather.
  • Where the weather is hot, daily watering may be needed throughout the first year of growth.
  • For an impressive display when planting multiple hedges, place five per metre. For a thicker hedge, plant seven per metre.
