Hornbeam is a commonly seen native tree. The mid green glossy foliage has deep veins and the turn to a golden yellow in the autumn. Carpinus betulus is a majestic tree which can be used as a specimen tree or it is also suited to pollarding or coppicing. The trunk has a fluted, twisted appearance which can be attractive in winter when the leaves have dropped. Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26').
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’.
Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
