Product Description
Prunus Spinosa Blackthorn Sloe Berry
Bare Root Hedging Plants 60-100cm

A very common species in British nature hedges, very thorny deciduous shrub that flowers just before Hawthorne in early spring.

Egg shaped black fruit with a purple haze.
The sloe gin ingredient.
Fully hardy

Eventual Height: 4m
Eventual Spread: 3m

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)

Once established this plant will grow anything between 20cm-45cm per year.

Each plant is bare root and 60-100cm tall.
