This Hawthorn based mix for bare root native hedging is primarily Hawthorn (50%), suitable for most conditions except for heavy soils and coastal/windy positions where Blackthorn is the better choice. The mix also contains 10% each of Bird Cherry, Field Maple, Dog Rose, Hazel and Blackthorn (the opposite to the main component). These species have been selected to provide a long period of interest through the year for humans (in flower, berries, leaf colour, leaf shape) as well as a variety of wildlife foods and shelter. Hawthorn based Mixed Native hedging is a popular and economical way to plant a hedge. Often used for field boundary hedging, this native species mix brings the British countryside into your garden.
