What a stunner!
Beautiful leaves. That is a defining characteristic of the mighty hornbeam (Carpinus betulus). Its green leaves with brown veins look amazing in any garden. During the winter, the leaves fall off the hedge. They return in full over the summer. The hornbeam is very hardy, surviving practically every climate. It also serves as a tall barrier in the garden. For a dense hedge, we plant five shrubs per metre.We deliver the beech hedge 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 spring and once in the autumn. 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.
