It’s still worth removing stones, weed roots and other unwanted rubbish. If you have a particularly poor, shallow or thick clay soil we’d still recommend some soil improvement to help your plant cope with the harsh conditions. Leave a cone of undisturbed soil in the centre of the hole. Adjust the height of the cone so that the “”high tide mark”” left from the soil at the nursery will sit at soil level with the roots spreading downwards. Loosen the remaining soil at the base and sides of the hole to help the roots develop. If you have any questions for us regarding our Bare root hedging or are simply unsure which type would be most suitable for you, get in touch.
Now that really is good service, it just couldn’t be better. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Keeping the spade in the ground and the slit open, place your tree inside to the dept of the collar and carefully remove the spade. Mark out two lines 60cm apart along the planting site to ensure your hedge will be straight. Tighten the tree tie with the buckle on the opposite side of the stake to the tree, leaving a little growing space but sufficiently tight that you’re tree does not jiggle around excessively.
Evergreens, especially, are often sold as root-wrapped, where the roots are in a soil ball contained by a fabric casing. This wrapping must be removed, if it is of synthetic fibre, but natural fibre wrappings are sometimes left on. Removal of wrapping is still recommended, though. To top it off, hedging is cheaper, longer lasting, and easier to install than a fence. I just wanted to say many thanks for my order, received today. I’ve just heeled all the plants in before planting properly at the weekend and all the bareroot stock looked very good indeed – good root systems and the sorts of sizes I was expecting.

Bare root hedging offers a great, cost-effective solution to hedging at home. Generally, bare root plants are deciduous so they can seem slightly disappointing when they arrive as the plants will be dormant. However, what you really get is a substantial root system and a decent amount of stem (depending on the age/height) and side shoots. Once you plant your bare roots and spring arrives you will soon see your plants flourish and realise you have made a fantastic investment!
If in doubt, 2 foot by 2 foot for shrubs and 3 foot by 3 foot for trees and to a spade’s depth in both cases is a good size.
