Hawthorn, also known as quickthorn is a thorny, deciduous plant which produces masses of fragrant, white flowers from April to May, followed by brilliant red 'haws' in autumn which are loved by birds and insects. Hawthorn is excellent for hedges and laying and can be planted as a single species hedge or part of a mixed native hedge. Good in exposed areas. Prune to 6-10ft as a hedge, or leave to grow to an eventual height of 25ft as a specimen tree.

 

Recommended planting distance: 5 per metre

Hardiness: Fully Hardy

Suitable for: Mixed native hedge, single species hedge

Features: Spring blossom, native, wildlife friendly

 

Bare root plants: These plants can be planted anytime between November and March. We keep our bare root hedging in tubs of damp compost at the nursery. If you are not planting your plants immediately then keep the roots damp (preferably in compost) and out the sun until you are ready to plant.

 

We may prune 20% off the tops of your plants before sending. This will encourage strong bushy growth
