These pot grown Hazel hedge plants are an effective way to plant a native hedge without costing a fortune if you can spare the time for these plants to reach a greater height. These plants are all 120cm tall from the top of the pot and come with three stems in each pot to give added bushiness immediately after planting.
Hazel (Corylus avellana) is native to the UK and can be found growing extensively in woodlands as trees but will also be found in most countryside hedges. It can be coppiced back if grown as an individual tree and clipped hard as a hedge plant. With its autumnal bounty of Hazelnuts (sometimes known as Cobnuts), hazel is known to many as a very British tree. It will grow on many different soil types and is a good all rounder native hedge species when planted as part of a mixed species native hedge.
A pure Hazel hedge is relatively uncommon and it is mostly found as part of a mixed species native hedge and will grow extremely well with other species such as Blackthorn, Field Maple, Spindle, Beech, Dog Rose, Hawthornand Hornbeam. Native hedges such as this can be found across much of the UK.
These Hazel hedge plants should be planted 45cm apart in a single row, as shown in the product photograph.
