Description

 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.

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.

    I was delighted with these. I have ordered hedging whips from other suppliers and these were by far the most competitively priced and the best quality.
