Hornbeam Hedging Plants

Carpinus betulus Hedge, Hornbeam Hedge

Hornbeam is a deciduous tree similar to Green Beech and can be trimmed into the most glorious of hedges. Hornbeam has oval, ridged, dark green leaves, which turn to rich oranges and yellows in the autumn. Hornbeam is easily grown as a hedge and does especially well on chalk & heavy clay soils. If Hornbeam hedges are trimmed in late summer, a large proportion of the crisp, dead leaves are retained well into winter. Hornbeam hedges will tolerate hard pruning, shade and are more suited to wet soils than Beech hedging.  An excellent choice for a deciduous formal hedge.

    Our Minimum order for rootballed or Instant hedging plants is one pallet. The quantity of plants that fit on one pallet is shown for each variety and size. There is NO vat to add to these prices. Please contact us for a quote for delivery.
    Rootballed plants are available in bigger sizes from October through to April, weather dependent. These plants are grown in bigger sizes going up to 3 metres in height. Rootballed plants are lifted during the plants dormant period. This reduces the amount of stress imposed on the plants and increases the chances of successful re-establishment. Plants are also lifted to order to minimise the time they are stored out of the ground before replanting. Although rootball plants may seem expensive many of these plants will be between 6-15 years old and will have been root pruned and trimmed many times before they are lifted. Rootball plants tend to be bushier than pot grown plants as they have been out in the field and more exposed to the elements. They are lifted from the field using specialist machinery and the soil rootball is hessian wrapped to protect it. This protective wrapping should be left on at planting and will naturally bio degrade.
