The richest red
Why go green? Especially when you have the uniquely red "Atropurpurea" beech hedge as an option! The leaves of this (Fagus sylvatica) beech hedge are a deep red. This stunning colour brightens up the garden almost all year round. The leaves may turn a bit brown over the winter. But they don't fall off the bush. This hedge definitely isn't deciduous! All those leaves means this hedge remains red and thick all year long. For a dense hedge, we plant three shrubs per metre.We deliver the beech hedge "Atropurpurea" as bare-root stock: just the ten bare branches and roots. The plants are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This gives them additional strength, enabling them to branch out faster than they would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They grow better and they're more economical.The hedge should be pruned twice per year. Once in the winter and once after the buds open in the spring. For the best results, give the hedge "beech and hedge" food. The hedge will grow in any moist, well-drained soil. Make sure that the ground stays moist during the initial period after planting. It's best to give them extra water during dry periods. And they need sufficient light in order to grow well. The hedge grows best in full or half sun.

Plant your Leyland Cypress in a trench 60-80 cm deep. Prepare the soil with compost and manure. Add some sharp sand to heavy clay soil. Soak the plants in water for one hour before planting. Divide the shrubs over the trench, placing three plants for every metre. You can also plant a double row of hedges. The top of the root ball should be equal to ground level in the garden (please note that some land will collapse). Fill with soil, and add lots of water so that it almost turns into a swamp. Water after planting and regularly at the start of each spring. It grows best in a somewhat sheltered area.


The Leyland Cypress is a strong evergreen conifer that requires minimal maintenance. Water soil during dry periods and provide a mulch of compost and granulated cow manure during the winter.

Leyland Cypress can be pruned

The Leyland Cypress can be pruned two to three times between May and August. The bottom of the hedge must be cut at least as wide as the top; in fact, possibly a little wider, so that the entire hedge receives enough light. Do you prefer a straight cut? If so tie a rope across the top for guidance. Don't prune too deep, always leave some leaves on the branches; this conifer doesn't tolerate deep pruning.


These hardy conifers are highly resistant to strong sea winds. The Cupressocyparis leylandii '2001' is a variety which grows just a little slower than other common varieties and therefore it is not necessary to prune as often.
