• Field Maple

    Acer campestre hedging

    From £1.99

    Field Maple (Acer Campestre) is a native, deciduous, fast growing hedging plant, which can be used both in a mixed native hedge or as a single species hedge. 

    Field Maple (Acer Campestre) is a very popular hedging choice due to its many features. Not only is it fast growing and native, it has stunning green and red leaves that turn a lovely yellow in the autumn. Before the leaves fall off in the colder month, you are treated to small yellow and green flowers in the spring. 

    This hedging plant does well in almost any situation apart from full shade. You can plant Field Maple alone or with other native hedging plants to create your very own mixed native hedge. Take a look at our other Native Hedging Plants

    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.
