Bare Root Hedging

Planting mixed native hedging is an essential part of creating a varied species rich habitat, not only in the countryside but also in gardens, even if only a few plants can be accomodated. By providing shelter for animals and roosting birds, nesting sites plus food in the form of nectar and berries we can all do a bit towards helping maintain a healthy wildlife population.

Recommended planting distance is a double staggered row with 4 to 5 plants per metre.
