Permaculture Hedge Mix

Product description

Permaculture Hedge Mix

A deluxe hedge with edible fruits for preserves, wines or just enjoying.

This informal mixed hedge is productive and will also greatly encourage wildlife into your garden. This hedge can be trimmed to keep it in check but for best flowers and fruit it should be given some room to grow a bit wild.

This hedge mix is made up with our selection of 5 of the following varieties:

Aronia melanocarpa - Black Chokeberry
Cornus mas 
- Cornelian Cherry
Amelanchier lamarckii - Snowy Mespilus
Sambucus nigra - Elder
Elaeagnus umbellata - Autumn Olive
Malus sylvestris - Crab Apple

Site

Will take some inland exposure and will grow in any reasonable soil

Spacing

We recommend planting this hedge at 2 plants per meter but you can space them further apart if preferred.

Planting

For best results, we recommend planting the varieties in groups that repeat themselves down along the hedge, with the exception of Crabapple which is best dotted individually.

Pruning

When first planted, a good prune will encourage good bushy growth, how hard you cut the plants depends on how low down you want them to bush from. Ongoing this hedge can either be trimmed regularly or left to grow, early spring or late Autumn after fruiting is the best time to prune.

Care

Keeping any young hedge weed and grass free is vital to the overall vigour and health of the hedge. Using weed membrane keeps back weeds and insulates the roots and will greatly increase growth rates, as well as cutting down on your weeding work. Mulching is another great option for insulating the roots and holding back weeds, bark mulch is the most commonly used medium.

Important

Suitable varieties in this hedge can change depending on availability. If you would like a specific species removed from the hedge mix, please let us know in the comments section at checkout.

These hedges are hand picked and take time to gather, if coming to the nursery, all mixed hedges must be preordered (using the code collect at checkout) at least two days in advance.

Potted plants

9cm pots

A 9cm pot is about the size of a takeaway coffee mug, it is an ideal size for planting Herbs, Alpines & Heathers. We supply some young Trees, Conifers & Shrubs in 9cm pots for cost effective planting, they will just require a little extra care in the first year or two, mainly making sure they don’t get swamped by weeds.

1.3L pots

A good size for Hedging as the plants are not too small but are still good value, we supply some unusual shrubs in this size too.

2L pots

Some young ornamental trees and most common shrubs are available in this cost effective size.

3L pots

A lot of our more unusual Shrubs and some trees are available in this size.

4L, 5L and 7.5L pots

Many trees and more unusual Shrubs are available in these larger sizes, good for a more instant effect.

10L Pots

This size is mainly for ornamental Trees.

Bareroot plants

1-2ft Bareroot

Plants will be easier to plant than larger plants but they will need to be kept totally clear of weeds for them to do well and they will take several years to offer much impact.

2-3ft Bareroot

Plants are a good economical choice, they are nearly big enough to not get swamped by weeds.

3-4ft Bareroot

This size is a good option for tree whips and Hedging as they will be well above any competition from weeds yet the roots won’t be too large for planting and they are not too tall to be knocked around by the elements too much.

4-5ft Bareroot

This size is the best choice for hedging when an instant effect is desired or to get tree whips off to a head start, they will need a larger hole for planting and they will need to be checked that they are not getting loose in the ground from time to time after planting. This size is more likely to get battered by the weather, so in very exposed areas it may be best to plant in March after the worst of the winter has passed. This tree grade may require staking.

 

For more information about choosing bareroot or potted plants see our guide to bareroot vs. potted.
