    How To Plant Cherry Plum Hedging, Conservation Hedging, Coral Pearls Hedging, Whispering Willows

    Unpacking/Pre-Planting Care

    When you receive your hedging unpack the roots from their polythene and mulch packing. If they are dry stand the plants in a bucket of water for no more than half an hour. Ideally they should be planted out as soon as possible; if this is not possible either ‘heel’ the plants into a shallow trench or alternatively wrap the roots back up in the bark chip and polythene they arrived in and store them in a cool frost-free place. Do not keep them in a warm place as they will start to come into growth prematurely. Every few days, check that the roots are moist, and plant out as soon as is practicable.

    Planting

    As with many things in life, remember that a little extra care and time taken with planting will pay dividends for many years to come!

    Our hedging plants can be set out from late November until April or later, depending on climatic conditions. Ideally, choose an open situation; if you want to plant next to a fence or wall, allow a minimum distance of 2 ft (60cm). Our hedging plants will grow in most soil types. Whispering Willows are also happy in soils prone to lying wet.

    Incorporating organic matter such as well-rotted manure (not fresh) or compost into the soil will give your plants the best start. Under no circumstances should you use any stimulants, fertiliser or bonemeal at planting time as these products will ‘burn’ any new root growth and slow your plants’ development!

    Set plants in a single row, in suitably-sized holes, planting them firmly. Plant Conservation Hedging and Whispering Willows 18" (45cm) apart, Cherry Plum Hedging and Coral Pearls Hedging 2 ft (60cm) apart. Water thoroughly if the ground is dry.

    Aftercare

    It is essential to keep your developing hedge free of weeds.

    At the beginning of each spring your plants will benefit from a mulch of well-rotted manure, bark chip or something similar. This will reduce the need for weeding and help with moisture retention. At the same time you can also lightly top-dress along the row with a balanced base fertiliser.

    During extended dry periods ensure your plants are watered thoroughly at least once a week; this is even more critical on lighter soils.

    Our hedging plants can be maintained at any height above 3ft (90cm) (4ft (120cm) in the case of Cherry Plum Hedging) and width of 2ft (30cm). Once established Cherry Plum Hedging and Conservation Hedging should preferably be trimmed in winter, before the birds start nesting. Coral Pearls Hedging should be pruned early in spring, before flowering, or at midsummer. Prune on a damp day if possible to reduce leaf scorch and damage. Prune Whispering Willows in the active growing season.
