How to plant:

We recommend planting between 60 and 100cm apart (2-3ft) depending how quick you want the plants to fill in and form a dense screen. Plant at 60cm (2ft) apart if you want a quick screen or 100cm (3ft) apart if you are willing to wait a bit longer for the hedge to form. A good compromise is 75cm (2’6″) apart. You can use our Hedge Spacing Calculator to work out how many you need.

Dig over the bottom of the hole or trench to ensure that any excess rain or water can drain from the hole and that the roots of the plants can grow into the soil easily. If the soil is compacted, break it up with a spade or the roots of the plants will not be able to get into the soil. You can add some good quality top soil or planting compost. We also recommend mixing our 12-14 month controlled-release feed to the soil. This will ensure all your plants have the nutrients they need to grow for the first year. Once they have established a good root system, they will be able to get their own nutrients from the soil.
