Description

The inspiration for the Mixed Native Hedging instant hedge comes from the hedgerows that roll across the British countryside. They are a random mix of different varieties but under pinning nearly all of it is hawthorn. The mixes that we supply are 60% hawthorn with the rest made up of other varieties that are proven to perform well across nearly all of the United Kingdom. The plants in these mixes will all give good cover, shelter and food for a wide range of animals, birds and insects. Being container grown this hedging will establish faster than the traditional way of planting a mixed hedge and due to its density it will not need rabbits guards when planted.

The Mixed Native Hedging Instant hedge is supplied in 2 main mixes; Mix 1 is Hawthorn, Field Maple, Hazel and Mix 2 is Hawthorn, Sloe, Cherry Plum. There is also 3 lesser mixes; Mix 3 Hawthorn, Crab Apple, Privet; Mix 4 Hawthorn, Elm, Rowan and Mix 5 Hawthorn, Holly, Hornbeam.

It is possible when trimming the Mixed Native Hedging instant hedge to leave certain plants un-trimmed to form small trees to add extra cover and interest to the hedge. The Best ones for leaving untrimmed are Field Maple, Sloe, Crab Apple, Rowan, Elm, Hornbeam and Holly.

The bigger the number of plants in a mixed hedge the more diversity of beneficial insects and animals that can be supported and the healthy the local area will be.
