YouGarden Carpinus Betulus (hornbeam) Hedging Set

This fantastic collection of Carpinus betulus, or as it is more commonly known, ‘Hornbeam’ will help you create a beautiful formal row of hedges that will provide you with interest all year long. Very similar to a Beech, the common hornbeam is a reliable and tough specimen that retains many of its leaves through winter, although it does tend lose a few more leaves than Beech. Hornbeams have gorgeous, glossy green leaves during spring that give way to coppery leaves in winter, retaining its leaves all year round. You can also plant your hornbeam to create a border to your garden, as hedges are also great for the environment and wildlife, providing shelter and food supplies for many animals. Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stu ing displays for many years to come. Fantastic hedging plant as it retains many of its leaves through winter.┬áColour changing foliage, green in spring, then changes with the seasons to copper in the winter. Use Hornbeam to divide areas of your garden, line pathways and borders. Hedges are great for the environment and wildlife, providing shelter and food supplies. Specifications Availability: All year round Planting time: September to July Supplied as a collection of 10 established plants in 9cm pots, approx. 30cm tall, ready to plant out, growing to a height and spread of 12m x 8m Top Tips Add mycorrhizal fungi with the roots on planting to help the plants get established more efficiently. Care Information Planting Advice for Hornbeam, Carpinus betulus: Pot-grown shrubs can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen. If in doubt, err towards spring but remember to keep pots well-watered so that the soil does not dry out. Shrub roots generally tend to spread out rather than down, so dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you’re planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place. Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain. Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots. Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker. Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot then refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling). Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well. Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc. Aftercare Advice for your Hornbeam: If you’re planting in spring or summer, water well and regularly for the first season. Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons. Pruning Advice for Carpinus betulus: Hornbeam trees do not require regular pruning, just a quick once over to remove any dead, diseased or damaged branches in the winter. If growing as a hedge, leave to establish for two seasons then remove the top of the plant when the desired height is reached and clip once a year in the summer.
