Hawthorn hedge plants (Crataegus monogyna) – also known as Quickthorn – is a deciduous native hedge with thorny branches and mid-green lobed leaves. In the spring, Hawthorn produces masses of creamy white, fragranced flowers, followed by shiny, red haws in the autumn months. Hawthorn’s sharp thorns make it both an excellent deterrent for intruders and a wonderful shelter for wildlife.

Hawthorn hedge (Crataegus monogyna) description

The Hawthorn is a very common sight in the English countryside, as this native hedge is great for supporting wildlife, including 150 species of insects, and is an important source of food and shelter for birds and small mammals. During spring, the pretty white blossom that adorns Hawthorn hedging gives off a beautiful, delicate fragrance and is very popular with bees. 

Best uses for Hawthorn hedging

Crataegus monogyna is incredibly versatile – it can be trimmed neatly or left bushy. Hawthorn is a dense, vigorous shrub, which makes it a useful windbreak even in the winter months, thanks to its thick network of branches. Quickthorn’s large, spiky thorns means that it is a great security hedge to have in your garden. Hawthorn is exceptionally hardy, making it an excellent option in exposed locations, including coastal, although it does prefer sunnier positions to shaded.

Delivery very poor. Waited the maximum time of 14 days for suppliers to send plants, then delivery was promised by Parcelforce but did not arrive. Then promised the next day and did not arrive, eventually received the next third promised day.
