Cultivation Guidance

  • On Arrival
  • We often trim the tops to ensure basal branching and for the hedge to grow thick before dispatch.
  • This is a natural growing hedge, alternate the young plants for more interest. We simply label each variety batch but not each subject.
  • Remember growing in a shady position will reduce the growth of the plants.
  • A mulch of spent mushroom compost or well rotted manure planting is beneficial.
  • Do not use any stimulants or bone meal at planting time.
  • Aftercare
  • Once well established this hedge can be cut by conventional hedge trimmers, but only in winter before the birds start nesting.
