Beech hedge plants are perfect for borders or screening. Spring leaves transform from fresh green to a glossy dark green in summer. In the autumn, you can enjoy Beech's distinctive yellow fading to orange-brown hues.
As Beech is deciduous, it is exempt from the 'high hedge' restrictions which applies to evergreen hedges. When regularly clipped into a hedge, Beech retains its dead leaves. This results in 'everbrown' screening during winter.
Our beech hedge plants will tolerate most moist but free-draining soils, including chalk. However they are not suitable for waterlogged conditions.
Size of mature Beech hedge plants
Root balled stock available November to March: each hedge plant is supplied as a wire-wrapped soil root ball dug from our fields. This is heavy but manageable by two people using a sack trolley. These plants will deliver instant density if you plant one every 2ft (60cm). We dig these plants from our fields during the dormant period of November to March.
