Crataegus Hawthorn Quickthorn Hedging Plants
Crataegus Monogyna | Hawthorn May Quickthorn
Bare Root Hedging Plants 125-150cm
Fragrant white flowers in May followed by spherical glossy dark red fruit and deeply lobed glossy, dark green leaves. Hawthorn makes a great specimen tree or boundary hedge for a range of settings. A valuable food source and refuge for native birds and insects and the spiney thorns serve as a deterrent against potential intruders.
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 or tree 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. 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). 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. These plants will grow in any soil, in sun or shade.
Crateagus once established will grow anything between 20cm-45cm per year.
Each plant is approx 125cm-150cm and bare root.
