These are BARE ROOTED plants which can be planted from the end of October until April and will be dispatched as soon as the weather turns cold and they become dormant.The dispatch date depends on the Autumn temperature and varies from year to year.

The hedge can be trimmed into any shape or size and will tolerate most conditions including shade and exposed areas.

Similar in appearance to beech, hornbeam makes a superb specimen tree or hedging plant. Grown as a tree, it has a pyramidal shape that later becomes more rounded. As a formal hedge it requires clipping once a year in mid to late summer to keep it looking tidy. Although it is deciduous, it retains its coppery dead leaves throughout the winter so it remains an effective screen. Green catkins appear in spring and winged nuts develop in autumn.

    Trees arrived according to information and emails. Trees a good height, reluctant to give 5 stars as they have only been in ground for a few days. Hopefully they will look good

  5. Very happy 5
