Alder (Alnus glutinosa) has many attractive qualites that make this hedging plant very favourable out of all our native hedging plants. Alder has long narrow male catkins in spring and tiny female woody cones which release seed in autumn. However, it's main quality is it's ability to thrive in wet and poor soils. Plant alongside other native hedging for a classic mixed native hedge. 
General hedge trimming should be done twice a year, once in early June and again in late September. It is important to prune at the right time, so as not to remove new growing shoots.
