Carpinus Betulus Hedging

Common Hornbeam Hedge Plants

from From £27.55 (ex. VAT)
( £33.06 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)
  • Common name: Common hornbeam hedging
  • Seasons of interest: Spring, Autumn, Winter

Ovate, glossy foliage is mid-green and deeply ribbed turning yellow in the autumn. Green catkins appear from late spring followed by clusters of winged fruit. Carpinus betulus is a very useful hedge and when clipped correctly will hold its copper brown leaves for some time when others have fallen, making it ideal for screening purposes. this hedging plant takes well to being trained and is often used for pleaching. The hornbeam hedging will happily grow in a shaded or damp position and is reliably tough. Also, this native hedging is attractive to a great deal of wildlife most prominently the hawfinch and several species of moth. Hornbeam is very similar to Beech hedging - the main differences are that the leaves have deeper veins and the planting conditions can be slightly damper.

Planting distances - 3-5 plants per metre

Delivery Timescales

Most deliveries are made within a week of placing the order (other than agreed pre orders) and many are despatched on the day we receive the order. There is a slightly longer delivery timescale on pleached trees or trees over 2.5m in height (all trees called Standard, Premium Standard, Heavy Standard, Extra Heavy Standard, Mature Trees or Pleached) because we have to group orders together into geographic areas for a specialist haulage contractor to deliver and this takes a bit of scheduling.

Gift trees and other trees required for arrival on a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure and at no extra charge. Although we really don't like to give ourselves wriggle room (because we so rarely need it!), we do have to say that we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

The vast majority of trees are sent on a 'no signature required' basis, so there's no need to be in to receive your order. You can give us instructions on where to leave your delivery either via the checkout or send us a separate email. For some mature or pleached trees we may contact you in advance if the delivery driver needs help getting the tree/trees off the vehicle.

All trees are packed very carefully by our experienced team and delivered using couriers who've been tried and tested over many years.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre and therefore customers need to make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections, despatch charges will be refunded.

Delivery Costs

Smaller trees/bushes have a delivery charge of £7.95 plus vat (excluding Highlands and Islands). Medium trees of a height of 1.5-2 metres have a delivery charge of £9.95 plus vat (excluding Highlands and Islands). Orders for multiple trees have a single delivery cost of £12.95 plus vat (excluding Highlands and Islands).

Mature trees and pleached trees are more expensive to deliver. Cost varies by postcode and is calculated in the check out process. You can buy more than one tree for the same delivery cost, so if you are purchasing a good number of trees it works out to be economical.

Highlands and Islands charges start from £29.95 plus vat and are calculated in the check out process.

Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and Overseas Destinations

Our courier charges are not viable for just one or two trees, but if you have a larger requirement then please do speak to us and we'll see if we can find a solution.
