This handsome plant has dense foliage, a little less hardy than the species and liable to revert to all-green shoots which should be cut out whenever seen. Inland it is best grown against a warm sheltered wall and covered with fleece for winter protection when temperatures drop below -5C (23F).
Excellent product and service
My hedging plants arrived very quickly; they were well packed and had survived transorting on some of the hottest days of the year relatively unscathed. There were a couple of extra plants included in my parcels - I presume just in case not all arrived intact. In the event, only one plant looked rather sad on arrival, and I have potted it on, rather than planting it straight away.
The rest of the plants are in the ground, and seem to be establishing very well. I cut them back on planting, and some new leaf buds are already forming, less than a week later. The plants are a very pleasing mid-green - almost lime green, in fact, and will brighten up that part of the garden very well.
I am delighted with both the plants and the level of service, and would recommend Beechwood Trees to everyone. I will certainly use them again!
