Our Feedback
I am a totally satisfied customer. Who was amazed by the carefully packed tree I'd ordered only days before. Which arrived it perfect condition. I throughly approve of the paperless policy and the lack of acres of plastic in the packaging. I will now be a return customer and recommend to all my friends

This is a traditional native hedging mix, reminiscent of English hedgerows of old.

Protective to property and land alike and so beneficial to nature's wildlife. Creating places for birds to nest, insect life and small mammals like hedgehogs and dormice this hedge will help conserve our fast diminishing precious wildlife.

Our conservation hedge consists of a balanced mix of Field Maple, Hazel, Dogwood, Guelder Rose and Wayfaring Trees.

Over half the species in this mix are recommended by the RHS to be excellent attractants and nectar sources for bees and other beneficial insects.

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.
