Beech hedge Fagus sylvatica green - Hardy plant

Fagus sylvatica
A dense hedge, 365 days a year
Want a nice, dense hedge all year long? The (Fagus sylvatica) beech hedge in a nursery pot might be exactly what you are looking for! The leaves keep their green colour almost all year round. They may turn a bit brown over the winter. But they don’t fall off the bush. This hedge definitely isn’t deciduous! This enables the hedge to remain nice and thick all year long. For a dense hedge, we plant three shrubs per metre.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.

Seasonal effects

The appearance of a hedge changes between seasons. From a bare plant lying dormant in winter to fresh greenery in spring, in full bloom during summer to leaves changing colour and dropping in autumn. This is a natural process courtesy of mother nature. Our plants will be delivered accordingly.

Planting+

Fagus sylvatica feels more at home in the ground. Prior to planting, soak the Fagus sylvatica root balls in a bucket of luke-warm water. Prepare large holes and loosen the soil with a fork. If necessary add some compost and mix well. Plant the root balls at the correct depth - the top of the root ball should be just below the surface. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly down. Water immediately after planting. Fagus sylvatica thrives in a not too dry humus-rich soil. Improve your garden soil with a mix of well rotted manure and compost. Plant in a sunny or partially shaded spot.

Care+

Although Fagus sylvatica is fairly drought tolerant, we do advise watering more often during periods of drought. This will help the leaves stay green (or red) for longer. A layer of garden compost with fertiliser as a mulch in winter or early spring is recommended. For the hedge to keep its beautiful form, prune your beech hedge into shape twice a year: 1st during the winter and the 2nd time in June when the new shoots have just appeared. This will enhance the straight lines of your pruned hedge which can then be admired for most of the year.

Extra+

The beech is a robust shrub, well suited to being grown as hedging. Pruning makes the shrub thicker and fuller every year. You can choose the height that suits you – you can keep it low or leave it and it will eventually reach 2 metres high, or even higher if required.
