RSPB approved Ultimate Bird Friendly Hedging Pack description

  • Best Features: Wildlife friendly, flowers, autumn colour, berries and sloes
  • Ideal For Hedges: 1m-4m high
  • Growth Rate: Average | 20-40cm a year
  • Position: Most normal or moist (not wet) soils, sunny to full shade, sheltered or exposed inland

The hedging plants in this Ultimate RSPB hedging pack have been chosen for their ability to provide garden birds with dense foliage for nesting; berries to provide a bird feast; and, as these hedge plants are also popular with the insects that birds feed on, this provides an additional food source. As these hedging species hold huge ornamental value in the form of vibrant flowers and blazing autumn colours, you don’t have to worry about compromising attractiveness for functionality; our RSPB approved Ultimate Bird Friendly Bundle provides both. All plants in the RSPB packs are grown peat free.

What's inside?

Hawthorn Crataegus monogyna - the thorny branches and dense foliage make an ideal nesting site and this species is also profuse flowering (to attract insects) and has plentiful haws in autumn. It is recognised by the RSPB as the absolute best species for wildlife value
Blackthorn Prunus spinosa - prickly stems to protect resting and nesting sites, and abundant sloes in autumn
Field Maple Acer campestre - popular with a variety of insects on which birds feed
Alder Alnus glutinosa - a native species with seeds that are a vital food source for many birds
Wild Privet Ligustrum vulgare – semi-evergreen foliage makes a great nesting site
Wild Cherry Prunus avium – huge wildlife value and wonderful seasonal interest
Bird Cherry Prunus padus – the small black cherries are adored by many bird species, gorgeous flowers attract many insects
Wayfaring lantana Viburnum lantana - seasonal colour provided by red autumn leaves and berries as well as white spring flowers
Juneberry - gorgeous spring white flowers 

Planting one of our RSPB Bird Friendly Bundles is a great long-term investment in the campaign to create a home for nature. Gardening for wildlife won't have immediate results, however planting one of our Bird Friendly hedging packs will in time provide you with a bountiful wildlife garden. We’ve worked closely with the RSPB Conservation team to ensure all the hedging plants in our Ultimate Bird Friendly Bundle provide shelter, food and nesting sites, as well as providing you with a garden feature that has all the characteristics of a traditional hedge such as screening value, wind and noise filters and attractive flowers and foliage.

Top uses for RSPB Ultimate Bird Friendly Hedging

Our RSPB hedging packs not only help with the conservation of the bird population but the diversity provided by hedge units supports many other different wildlife species including insects, hedgehogs and various other small garden animals. This Ultimate RSPB hedging bundle is jam-packed with species that will fill your garden with seasonal interest; colourful flowers in summer, vibrant foliage in autumn and bright berries in winter all whilst contributing to the protection of local wildlife species. For best results mix the species up when planting your hedge and avoid planting in single species groups.

Combine RSPB Bird Friendly Hedging Packs with

This Ultimate Bird Friendly Bundle has plenty of features to ensure your garden is bursting with colour, texture and wildlife but you can also add other bird friendly hedging for further interest or allow some of the hedgerow plants to grow as trees to give good height for those birds preferring a higher resting/nesting site.

Expected growth rate of RSPB Ultimate Bird Friendly Hedge Bundles

Our RSPB hedging packs grow an average of 20/40cm a year once established and are ideal for hedges between 1-4m high.

Care advice for your RSPB approved Bird Friendly Hedging

Prune your Bird-Friendly hedge in winter and, if required, follow with a light prune in summer to keep it neat but make sure you do not prune off any berries. Always check for nesting birds before proceeding with any pruning or maintenance. Take a look at the Best4hedging Care and Planting instructions in our Advice section for more information.

Planting density for Hedging Bundles

We generally recommend that mixed hedging packs like this one should be planted in a double staggered row at 5 or 7 plants per metre (to give good density at the base which is important for wildlife habitat), but you can reduce that density to 3 per metre in a single row to economise and the plants will still form a good hedge. The rationale for a double staggered row is it provides greater density so is better for security and wildlife.

Our RSPB Ultimate Bird Friendly hedging packs are available year-round as cell-grown plants and from November as Bare Roots - these can be pre ordered from mid-summer. All of our RSPB approved hedging has been grown peat free. You can buy RSPB approved Ultimate Bird Friendly hedging packs online from Best4hedging with total confidence in the quality of the plants you will receive.

Although there was a tiny misunderstanding-Best4hedging sorted it out immediately and were so delightfully courteous this still rates an excellent rating. I look forward next season to tackling another area of my garden which needs hedging and will not hesitate to use Best4hedging again.
