Hedge Mix: Edible Hedge
This edible hedge mix is excellent for wildlife as well as looking attractive. After Spring blossom the hedge will be laden with nuts and fruit in the autumn. Sloes, apples, berries, haws - great for cooks and foragers too! It includes only native British species. A good hedge to lay, our native edible hedge includes a native rose, Elder,Cherry Plum,Hazel,Blackthorn, and Crab Apple. The hedge will be head high after three years or so, depending on conditions. The hedgerow plants here will thrive in a wide variety of sites and situations, including a north facing site.
Plants For Sale
These plants are 60/90cm apart from the Cherry plum, which is 40/60cm this year. We sell them in packs of 50, which is enough for 10m of hedge. We recommend planting in two staggered rows at least 50cm apart. Plant 3 - 5 plants of the same species together in a group for a more natural look. If you would like to find out more about how to plant and maintain your hedge, please look at our blog .

During the lifting season there may be up to two weeks delay between placing the order and despatch, due to weather conditions or pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence.
