Full Product Details

Product Information

Grow bushy hedges with large, rounded leaves with this superb Hazel variety, also known as Cobnut.

Pretty green leaves grow from spring with slightly serrated edges and characteristic pointed tips, before turning to a seasonal shade of golden orange when autumn rolls around.

From the end of winter to early spring, fluffy yellow catkins dangle along the edge of twigs left bare by seasonal conditions.

Dainty yellow flowers emerge at the same time as the catkin clusters but can easily be overlooked due to their small stature. Pale green hazelnuts are produced in autumn when at least some of the catkins and flowers have been saved from trimming, much to the delight of squirrels!

What’s more, Hazel hedges are a perfect solution for attracting wildlife to the garden, as dozens of insect species, as well as small mammals, will benefit from the shelter and foliage.

Easy to grow, these deciduous and hardy hedges will thrive in most types of free-draining soil, even when exposed to strong winds or long periods of shade.

Don’t forget to use one of our handy bamboo cane and spiral guard sets when planting a bare root hedge. The cane will keep the bare root upright as it grows, while the spiral guard will protect the base of the plant from wildlife to achieve as thick a hedge as possible.

Hazel hedges grow at a good rate, by roughly 45cm per year. Supplied as 25 bare root hedges, 40-60cm tall, ready for planting.

Top Tips

For best performance, plant bare root hedges in the winter.

Care Information

On Arrival:

  • When your bare root hedges arrive, be sure to place them upright in a bucket of clean water as soon as possible for a minimum of two hours. 
  • Only remove the plants from the water when you go to plant them, to ensure the roots are wet when planted and avoiding the chance of them drying out. 
  • If you are not ready to immediately plant your bare roots when they arrive, they can be stored in a sheltered space, such as a shed, for up to a week. Just be sure to open the package they arrive in and keep the roots moist.

Planting:

  • Where possible, plant in well-drained, good-quality soil in a sunny or partially shaded space in the garden for best performance. 
  • Trim the roots slightly before planting, as this will encourage healthier growth. 
  • Dig a trenched hole in the ground in the shape of a ‘V’, deep enough for the bare root to sit comfortably so the ‘tide mark’ of the root is level with the ground. This marks the level where the bare root was previously planted before lifting for delivery.
  • Ensure the roots are completely covered in soil, then firm the soil around, as water will gather in any remaining air pockets and potentially damage the roots when it freezes.
  • Water immediately after planting, then again whenever there are three or more days of continuous dry weather.
  • Where the weather is hot, daily watering may be needed throughout the first year of growth.
  • For an impressive display when planting multiple hedges, place five per metre. For a thicker hedge, plant seven per metre.
