Can you plant hedging in the winter?

Thursday, 15 November 2018 07:48:00 Europe/London

Yes, you can hedges in the winter. In fact, it is one of the best times to plant hedging. You can plant bare-root, root-balled or pot-grown hedging in the winter as long as you can get a spade in the ground!  Generally, in most parts of the UK, it rarely freezes for long enough to freeze the ground more than an inch or two at the surface of the soil, so you can usually dig the soil even if there has been a frost. All the hedging plants we sell are hardy and do not mind being planted in the winter, in fact the sooner you get them in the soil, the more chance they have of establishing a root system before the soil dries out in the spring.  Bare-root plants should not be left out of the ground during hard frosts so should be “healed in” to the ground - in other words, dig a hole and put them all in the soil together until you are ready to plant.
