Euonymus Europaeus Spindle Hedging Plants
Euonymus Europaeus Spindle
Bare Root Hedging Plants 60-100cm
Euonymus Europaeus, spindle, is a large fast growing native hedge or small tree. Bears tiny flowers in the summer followed by shiny scarlet fruits and pink autumn foliage. Mildly poisonous but very beautiful Spindleberry is commonly used in country hedgerows and grows well on chalk.
Excellent for feeding and encouraging the birds in the winter.
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).
Once established will grow anything between 20cm-45cm per year.
Each plant is approx 60cm-100cm and bare root.
