£29.98 each

  • Will flower well in full sun

Hornbeam is hardy native plant easily grown as a hedge. The ridged, dark green leaves change to rich shades of orange and yellow in autumn. Bears green catkins spring time and the clusters of winged fruit in autumn.

Hedges within gardens create a softer, more wildlife friendly boundary and can provide a great seasonal display of flowers, berries and autumn colour. Even a small hedge can create your own little wildlife habitat.

They can be close clipped or left a bit wilder, a mix of native varieties will give different periods of interest and a good nesting and winter food source for birds.

Planting distances vary from 30-60cm/1-2ft depending on the variety and the size of hedge required. For a denser hedge plant a staggered double row with 38cm/15in between rows and 45cm/18ins between plants.

Plant size is approximately 45-60cm on arrival.
