Bare root hornbeam plants for a hardy, elegant hedge: excellent resilience to difficult, heavy or damp soil.  As a hedge, we recommend planting approximately 3 plants per metre (ie approx 30 cms between plants). For a wider hedge, plant 4 plants per metre in two staggered rows. Trim once a year in early summer or as required. Plant in sun or light shade and keep the ground free of grass while establishing; be careful not to damage the stem with strimmers or mowers.

"In almost every respect, hornbeam makes a superior hedge to beech, particularly if you want to pleach or train it." Monty Don in The Guardian newspaper. See more hornbeam hedge images...
