Wildlife Fruiting Hedge Mix

Product Description

Wildlife Fruiting Hedge

13/02/21 Sorry this mix is sold out for this season, but some individual varieties can still be purchased.

A great mix to encourage wildlife into your garden, a selection of fruiting hedgerow plants.
Every variety in this mix will produce a berry or nut that birds, bees and butterflies will love, it will also provide shelter for small mammals.
This is a more informal hedge / screen that can be clipped to shape but is well suited to a taller hedge.

This hedge mix is made up with our selection of 6 of the following varieties, with Hawthorn making up an average of 40% of the mix:

Crataegus monogyna - Hawthorn
Corylus avellana 
Hazel
Sambucus nigra - Elder  
Prunus padus - Bird  cherry
Rhamnus cathartica - Purging Buckthorn
Malus sylvestris - Crab apple
Viburnum lantana - Wayfaring tree

  • This hedge will take inland exposure and will grow in any reasonable soil.

  • We recommend planting this hedge at 3 plants per mtr in a staggered row, with 6 to 9’’ between the rows. 

  • You could plant the varieties as they come out of the parcel, but for best results, we recommend planting  the varieties in groups that repeat themselves down through the hedge.
  • When first planted, a prune will encourage good bushy growth, how hard you cut the plants depends on how low down you want them to bush from, at the very least prune off any whippy growth or prune down to 1 ft. 

  • Ongoing this hedge can get a trim in early Spring. For mature hedges, avoid cutting during the nesting season between early March and the end of August.

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.

Suitable varieties in this hedge mix can change depending on availability.

We can’t promise to include every variety in this hedge mix but if there is anything you definitely do not want included, please let us know in the notes field when ordering, thank you.

These hedges are hand picked and take time to gather, if coming to the nursery, all mixed hedges must be preordered at least 1 day in advance.

Mixed Hedges can be ordered, when in stock, for delivery from November to April.
