Couldn’t recommend and rate Cullen Nurseries more highly! They supplied excellent specimen shrubs and looked after all planting at a very competitive rate, not to mention a very speedy turn around. A super family run Irish business! Thanks Caitriona & Rob. M

So happy to have chosen Cullen Nurseries to supply, plant and fertilize our new Red Robin hedge. Great customer service from Caitriona and really pleased with the very professional job Rob & his colleague did planting them. Pics don't do them justice - this was the day they were planted - 61 x 2l Red Robins - really healthy looking plants. Delighted and looking forward to seeing them grow over the years. Thank you!

Description

Properties of Hornbeam hedging Plants

Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) is a semi-evergreen hedging plant in that it loses its colour over the Winter months but does not necessarily lose all its leaf. The plant retains some of the younger foilage which in turn gets pushed off the stems as new Spring growth comes along.

Hornbeam hedging is very similar in appearance to Green Beech Hedging Plants, both have a gray bark and ribbed texture to the leaf.

Hornbeam however tends to be a knottier plant and is best suited to a damper area, making it a good alternative to Beech in these damp areas. It is best to trim an established Hornbeam hedge twice a year, as this encourages the hedge to retain more foliage over the Winter months.

Learn more about our Native Nursery where we are growing our large range of Hedging Plants.

  • Type: Fast Growing
  • Soil: Any well-draining soil, tolerates wet soil better than Beech.
  • Status: Hardy in cold weather, loses colour and leaf in Winter
  • Position: Full sun, shade, tolerates shade
