Cell grown hedging is the most economical option available to purchase year round. Cell grown hedge plants are a good midway between bare root plants and small pot grown plants. Unlike bare roots plants they come with their roots intact but are not as developed as large pot plants. This is reflected in the price as they are slightly more expensive than bare roots (with added benefits) and more economical than pot grown plants.
As the roots are intact there has been no loss of feeding roots or the protective root hair. This contributes toward their high success rate. Cell grown plants can be planted year round but they will establish more rapidly when planted into warm soil during the months of March to June and September to October. If planting in the middle of summer, ensure the roots are kept moist. If planting after October and before March avoid planting if the ground is frozen or waterlogged. At Best4hedging we highly recommend planting with Rootgrow, an organic fertiliser endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society.
