**** BARE ROOT HEDGING NOW IN ****
Now is the time to be thinking of planting new hedges, and we have a great range if bare root native hedging to choose from.
Planting a native hedge for wildlife is not only worthwhile but a diverse and interesting garden feature in its own right. You’ll achieve year-round interest in the form of berries and seeds, flowers and a varied range of foliage, not to mention the increased number of birds, insects and small mammals you’ll notice in the garden.
You’ll be rewarded in no time as you start to see the different mammal and invertebrate species that your hedge supports. Birds will be delighted with a new nesting site and feed on the berries, seeds and any insects and spiders lurking in this new found haven. Smaller mammals will use the base of the hedgerow for shelter and will soon add it to their network of trails.
Remember your night-time visitors, it’s not just butterflies that need nectar, moths need it too. They’ll love any white or cream coloured flowers so blackthorn blossom is a perfect addition to the menu.
As you watch your native hedge develop, you’ll notice the long season of interest, from the spring and summer blossom through autumn colour and berries into the winter. Additional evergreens like yew, holly and common beech which holds onto its autumn leaves mean that there’s always something to see.
