Fagus Sylvatica Green Beech Hedging Plants
Fagus Sylvatica Green Beech
Bare Root Hedging Plants 150-175cm
Green beech hedging matures into a tough attractive hedge that needs little care and attention. Rich green foliage displaying autumn colour.
Beech will grow in any soil but is slower to establish on heavy clay soil (although once established will thrive).
The planting season is between November and late March while the plant is in dormant growth. Dig a reasonable hole and plant with either some rose, tree and shrub compost or any organic matter (but not fresh manure, well rotted is fine) and plant with some bone meal or fish, blood and bone as this will encourage quick root growth. Plant 4 per metre in a staggered row (in a double row 50cm apart and the rows 30cm apart) clipping the top leader on planting to encourage bushy growth.
Do not water once planted (unless the ground is very dry), so the plant will find it's own water (make it work for it's water, creating strong root growth)
Each plant is approx 150-175cm.
Beech once established will grow anything between 20cm-45cm per year.
