Treat wildlife and add structure to your garden with this Field Maple hedging.
A journey of colour can be witnessed across the spring and summer months as green leaves emerge, before changing to an autumnal shade of golden yellow as the year progresses.
In spring, pollen-rich yellow-green flowers blossom across the hedges, just as the leaves begin to appear and show off their full five-lobed shape.
The large, textured leaves are perfect for helping birds to nest in spring and summer, while winged fruits, loved by small garden mammals such as voles and squirrels, are produced in the autumn when the green colour abandons the leaves to make way for attractive yellows and reds.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence.
With an ability to thrive in most soil types, plant Field Maple hedges in full sun or partial shade, while avoiding full shade if possible.
Eventually forming a full and satisfying hedge, this compact variety grows at a fast rate, by up to 30-60cm per year.
Supplied as a bare root hedge, 60-90cm tall, ready for planting.
