Description of Whitethorn Hedging
Whitethorn hedging has thorns and is deciduous (losing its leaves during the winter months). It is easy to maintain and is quick to grow. During the month of May the branches are covered with white flowers and in autumn, there is an abundance of red haws. The Whitethorn is great for our wildlife and is a really hardy hedge.
