The Dog Rose hedge plant is a native wild rose with very prickly stems, beautiful and profuse pale pink flowers in June, orange/red rose hips in autumn and a typical rose leaf. Dog Rose is included in our mixed native hedging packs or if you're choosing your own species, this is one not to miss. It's fast growing and scrambling so we generally advise people to take a size down from the rest of their plants. For example, if you're buying other plants at 60-90cm then you only need 40-60cm Dog Rose. Flowers late May-October, producing pink fllowers. Grows 40-60cm per year. Supplied as 40-60cm bare roots.
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.
