Description:

 

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.

  1. Quick delivery, good product 4

    Hornbeam ordered Friday, delivered Monday, so that was very quick.
    I ordered 40 and they came in four batches of ten, with two of the batches clearly more advanced than the other two. However, the roots of all four batches were bone dry, so I soaked them for a couple of hours and planted them on the day of delivery, sprinkling Rootgrow in the trench to help the growing process. They look good but only time will tell how good they turn out to be.

  2. Awesome - End to end service and products 5

    My first time ordering from Beechwood Nurseries, I purchased bare root Hornbeam/Carpinus Betulus and was very impressed with the quality, all trees had good spread of strong roots.

    "Shipping was lighting fast" and trees were secured well for transport.

    Over all faultless transaction, communications!
