  • It is sold as bare root plants from November through to March, the bare root planting season.
  • After planting, it is advisable to cut it back to about 12 inches, to prevent weeds from growing up through, place a layer of chippings or even organic bark mulch around the base of the plants. This keeps down the weeds and also helps keep in the moisture.
  • Cutting back the plants encourages growth in the base of the plants therefore creating a thicker, bushier, more robust hedge.
  • However, if planting in the absence of mulch and chippings, leave the plants for one year, and cut back the following year when the plant is more established to allow the hedge to thicken up.
  • Pruning should then be carried out in a dormant period during the Winter months. Always consider nesting birds when pruning hedges.
