Hornbeam is a fabulous choice of hedge where the ground is quite damp. It will tolerate wind too, so makes it a very versatile hedge. The leaves of the Hornbeam hedge turn crispy brown during Autumn, similar to the Beech hedge and they will retain some of the leaves until the new growth starts in the Spring.
Plant Hornbeam in full sun to partial shade and it will tolerate most soil (except if waterlogged)
