Dog Rose

Rosa canina hedging

From £1.00

Dog Rose (Rosa canina), also known as Wild Rose or Wild Briar, is a lovely flowering hedging plant and shrub that is very prickly whilst producing large orange and red berries that are a treat for wildlife. This variety is ideal to plant within a mixed native hedge.

A perfect addition to any mixed native hedge, Dog Rose (Rosa canina) flowers lightly scented pink and white open flowers in May and June which are then followed by red and orange fruits which are tasty for birds. This hedging plant is also intruder proof from its spikey stems and this dense cover makes a good retreat for wildlife. Dog Rose is very fast growing and it will do well in most soil types. Rosa canina is known to be a rambling shrub, it will create a bushy hedge but it most commonly is combined with other shrubs to produce an intruder proof barrier and add summer flower interest.

1. Select Root Type

Bare Root 

Bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the planting season but they can be pre-ordered in summer to guarantee your stock. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options and the cheapest way to plant a hedge.

Root Ball 

Root ball plants are also seasonal stock as they can only be lifted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). These plants are scooped out of the ground like an ice-cream using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks.  They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly. Root ball hedging plants give an instant effect and are a cheaper alternative to instant trough grown hedging. 

Pot Grown 

Pot grown plants can be planted year round and they are our mose convenient option of hedging plants. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements. From small 2L shrubs to large 15L extra tall hedging, there will be a pot grown plant for any garden type. 

Instant Hedging 

Our Instant Hedging is grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season to create a dramatic, instant hedge effect. If you are looking for a quick fix or an instant impact, Instant Trough Grown hedging is the solution for you.
