Blackthorn (Hedging)

Prunus spinosa,Sloe

Well known as a Sloe bush when seen growing in our natural hedgerows, this Blackthorn hedging makes a good, strong and reliable screen. Covered in white flowers in late spring, then turning to the black rounded berries in autumn. The foliage is dense and the branches are thorny, making it an excellent protection or deterrent hedge too. Supplied as 60 - 90cm bareroots (24 - 35") Height: 4m (13'). Spread: 4m (13'). Planting Distance: 25cm (10"). (4 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

Plant Blackthorn in any moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Incorporate plenty of compost or well-rotted manure prior to planting. Ideally grown in full sun.
Water regularly until fully established. Blackthorn require little aftercare. Simply remove any diseased, damaged or crossing shoots to maintain a healthy framework. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plants in spring, taking care not to mound mulch up against the stems.
