Hazel is a native species with large, furry, green leaves. It displays delightful, dancing catkins in summer and hazelnuts (which the squirrels will get before you) in autumn. The stems are flexible and very useful in the vegetable garden as pea or bean stakes. We include Hazel in our discounted mixed native hedging packs - but if you're choosing your own selection we would encourage you to include some of these plants for their wildlife qualities. Flowers mid September-late November. Available in packs of 25 and 50 bare roots and grows 30-60cm per year.
Bare Root hedging plants are a great, cost-effective way for you to achieve your hedging goals. They are grown in an open environment, exposed to natural conditions, which allows these plants to develop with no restrictions. When opting for this root type, you will receive well established plants with sturdy root systems as a result of their growing method. Given the way in which they are grown, bare rooted plants are available from November until May as this is the time of year when the plants are dormant and can be safely lifted from the field. This category mostly consists of native, deciduous hedging species which many of them flower and/or berry so they make great hedges for wildlife and provide seasonal interest.
