Our Native Farm Hedging is approved for the Countryside Stewardship Scheme. Our Native Farm Hedging mix is a great choice for paddocks, fields and gardens. None of the plants are poisonous to livestock, and they provide a diverse habitat that encourages wildlife who feast on the fruits, seeds and berries the hedge provides. It also creates a natural corridor for the movement of wildlife, and RSBP says that these hedges provide support for up to 80% of our woodland birds.
Our native hedging mix plants contain a mix of species that provide year round seasonal interest. Native Farm Hedging provides a substitute for lost woodland edge habitat. Most Native farm Hedging you see is ancient, as far back as mediaeval times, and over time, these hedges provided enclosures and the foundation of our countryside you see today. Native farm Hedging today is common in garden, industrial sites and office buildings.
Native Farm Hedging is supplied at the rate of 5 plants per metre and is planted in a double staggered row. Distance between rows of about 50cms. The Farm Hedging will then provide a good thick hedge giving protection to stock and food and shelter for wildlife throughout the year.
Native farm Hedging is suitable for all types of soil, once planted in, water well, and weed until established. Rabbit guards can be applied but keep weed free and discard after two years, they are not biodegradable. Bamboo canes provide support for the young plants. Trim once a year, but not from April to August, which disturbs nesting birds. Reduce the height of the hedge by 50% on day of planting, then again another 50% the following winter, this will make the plants bushier , thereafter trim the side and the top which encourages growth of new buds. Native farm Hedging should grow to a height of 2m in around 3 years.
