Hedgerows are nature’s wildlife highway and a haven for nesting birds, and now is the best time to plant a new hedgerow. At this time of year bare-rooted plants are available and good value. Hawthorn plants for example at 40-60cm can be bought for less than 30p each.
I’m often asked this question but there isn’t a straight forward answer. Small trees are often slow growing and it can take many years for them to reach their full potential.
