Silver birch (Hedging)

Betula pendula

Hardy Tree

Always attractive in a native hedging scheme, the Silver Birch is not one to be overlooked! The delicate stems and twigs of this beautiful tree make for a dense screen in winter when bare, or in summer when they are covered in leaves. Brown catkins will hang down in late spring and early summer too adding extra interest and the silver/white coloured bark is of course what the tree is famous for! Supplied as 60 - 90cm bareroots (24 - 31") Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting Distance: 30cm (12"). (4 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

hedges, low maintenance garden, woodland garden
Flowering Period:
May, June, July

sun or semi shade

Grow Birch on any moist, fertile, well drained soil. Birch trees thrive in full sun or lightly dappled shade and are generally tolerant of windy positions.
Feed and water Betula until fully established. Once established, Birch trees require no maintenance. If pruning is necessary to remove diseased or misplaced stems then this should be carried out in winter when the plant is dormant, as Birch has a tendency to bleed sap if pruned during the growing season.
