Description

Copper Beech can be grown to almost any height to create a neat and tidy screen. When grown side by side, the plants will knit together to form a dense, interwoven hedge that makes a good security barrier. The colourful foliage makes a decorative feature, and just like Green Beech, it will retain some of its autumn foliage through the winter, so the stems are rarely completely bare. This well behaved hedging plant is easy to maintain, only needing clipping once or twice a year. Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting distance: 30cm (12").(4 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

For instant impact try one of one of our innovative trough-grown hedges! Each trough contains a 1 metre length of pre-planted hedging to create a mature looking hedge from the very moment it is planted. With well-established root systems, you’ll find that trough-grown hedges are correctly spaced, making them much easier to plant. The healthy framework of branches are nicely knitted together, and can be trimmed to the ideal height immediately after planting. Better still, you can plant them all year round, so long as adequate irrigation is provided. If planting is delayed then trough-grown hedges can be easily maintained until you are ready, without the need for ‘heeling in’.
