Properties of Hawthorn Hedge Plants

Hawthorn Hedge plants, commonly known as Whitethorn Hedge plants are a common sight in Farms around Ireland.

Planted for their fast growing properties along with their hardy nature makes them a first choice in this setting.

They are often mixed with other flowering Native hedge plants.

Hawthorn plants are thorny making them a deterrent for Livestock and this is why they are the number one choice for stock-proofing hedges.

White flowers in May followed but bright red berries later in Autumn makes them a valuable food source in the ecosystem.

Fibrous spreading roots also makes them ideal for improving soil health and condition.

Plants are usually planted in a staggered double row with 6 plants per metre or in a single row, 3 plants per metre.

Hawthorn are on the approved list of species for the REAP scheme and the Newly launched Green Acres Scheme.
