Traditional Mixed Native Saxon Hedging Plants
Traditional Mixed Native Saxon Hedging Plants | 20 Plants
A saxon hedge is a mix of 60% Hawthorn, 20% Blackthorn and 20% mixed native shrubs which can include Rosa Canina, Maple, Corylus, Viburnum Lantana and Viburnum Opulus.
Excellent for feeding and encouraging the birds in the winter.
The hedge will produce flowers by fruits and lovely Autumn colour. Some of the plants are spiney and are excellent as a barrier against unwanted visitors.
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. 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.
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)
Saxon Hedging once established will grow anything between 20cm-45cm per year.
Each plant is 60-90cm tall and bare root..
