Mixed Native Blackthorn Based Bare Root Discounted Packs

Native Hedge Plants

From £59.99

Blackthorn is one of our UK native hedging heroes and a popular selling hedging plant. Prunus spinosa blossoms early on in the spring season which is a nice treat for all gardens and a lovely contrast against other dull hedging. You will be treated to small white flowers that are carried on black stems. In the summer the leaves will then turn a lovely dark green and oval shape. The fruit that is produced on Blackthorn is known as 'sloes' which turn from blue to black. This hedging plant is a real wildlife haven, the density of Prunis spinosa provides a great shelter for birds and other wildlife whilst the sloes provide a great source of food. If you are looking to attract more birds to your garden, this is your go to hedging plant. We also recommend to plant Blackthorn amongst other native hedging plants to create a real wildlife attraction.

  • 50% Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa)
  • 10% Bird Cherry (Prunus padus)

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.
