The Royal Horticultural Society bare root hedging range is a very low cost way of planting a hedge. The bare root plants are only available to buy and plant when dormant. (November-March) These plants, with known seed provenence, are grown in 220 acres of rich Herefordshire soil. As they are dispatched directly from the fields, rather than through a nursery, they are much fresher than imported or even stored plants. RHS bare root plants are grown through low input horticultural methods. Plants are rotated with pigs annually, to improve soil condition. Water is harvested in the winter for use in the summer. No heat or polytunnels are used and, as the plants are dispatched direct from the fields, transport is kept to a minimum.Tough, tolerant and fast growing, the sprawling stems of this native rose will form a thick impenetrable hedge in record time. The pink-flushed, white flowers have a lovely scent and appear throughout summer. As they fade, glossy red fruits (hips) form, which add interest well into autumn. A wonderful addition to a wildlife-friendly garden as the hips are very attractive to birds. The prickly stems however will make unwanted visitors think twice before they try to cross. Happy and undemanding in most settings, it is particularly useful in coastal areas.Garden care: For best results, plant them out as soon as they arrive into well prepared soil. As the flowers appear on stems that have grown in the previous year, pruning should be kept to an absolute minimum if you are growing them for a good display of flowers and hips. To keep it looking fresh though, you can cut back a couple of the older stems to around 30cm above ground level, from late autumn to early spring.Please note that as we grow the hedging especially for you, we need to take full payment when you place your order so as to reserve stock for you. The bareroot plants will then be despatched to you during November.
