The Blackthorn is thorny and wildlife love it. It is a traditional hedge that grows easily. Blackthorn hedging is a very hardy hedge that is perfect for stock proofing your surround.
I have planted a mixed native hedge using Blackthorn mixed with Whitethorn.
Blackthorn when planted will grow in full sun and part shade and will grow in most soil types.
Prune the Blackthorn hedge during the winter months.
Blackthorn hedging is available as bareroot plants from November until March.
