These are  bare rooted plants which can be planted from 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.


Beech is most commonly available as the species with bright green leaves in spring that darken towards summer before turning copper in the autumn, they then turn brown over winter if they are retained which only happens when used as hedging, large tree forms lose most or all of the leaves in the winter.

It also takes very well to being grown as a hedging plant producing superb hedges that can be used in formal or informal settings. Beech hedges make effective windbreaks and sort of span the evergreen / deciduous boundary as whereas they are deciduous, they retain the dead leaves on the branches through the winter until they are pushed off by new shoots in the spring time. They are not completely bare and twiggy therefore when grown as a hedge.Plant 3 per metre in a single row or 5 per metre in a double row.

Beech can be planted as a single specimen tree which will grow to a maximum height of 30 metres but it will shed it's leaves in Autumn.

    20 beech bare rooted hedging plants. I ordered these to fill the gaps in my fully grown beech hedge which had become bare at the bottom from where a border was removed from in front of it. Fast delivery, ordered on Monday, arrived on Friday. Well packaged and in good condition. All planted the next day. As it's winter they are in a dormant state right now so will have to wait until the spring to see how they grow, but all looking good so far.
