Carpinus betulus - Hedging Pack

Common Hornbeam Hedge Plants

from From £27.55 (ex. VAT)
( £33.06 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

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.

Delivery Timescales

Most deliveries are made within a week of placing the order. Many are despatched within 24 hours of receiving the order, but please allow up to 10 working days to be on the safe side. There is a slightly longer 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. All trees are packed very carefully by our experienced team and delivered using couriers who've been tried and tested over many years.

Gift trees and other trees required for arrival on a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure at no extra charge. Although it is rarely a problem, 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.

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.
