Bare-root Hedging

Cost efficient and easy!

Bare-root hedging is field grown and lifted during the dormant season, having the soil shaken from the roots, leaving them bare. It is the most cost efficient way of growing a hedge.

Before planting Soak the root bundle for an hour in a bucket of water before planting. Prepare the site by digging over the ground 30cm either side of the hedge line, removing weeds as you go. Add bonemeal to promote root growth.

Planting a bare-root hedge

Lightly prune the roots of the bare-root plants with secateurs to encourage vigorous new growth. Cut a V-shaped trench as deep as the plant roots, ensuring it’s straight by using a taut line. Insert plants into the trench at 45cm spacings – this is suitable for most hedging plants. Ensure plants are at the same depth they were previously and tread soil in around their roots.
