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.

Combine your Hawthorn hedge with..

You can either grow Hawthorn hedging alone to create a beautiful, effective screen or alongside other native plants for a hedgerow that boasts a rainbow of flowers, berries and foliage colours. For instant impact in your garden, best4hedging has a range of mixed native hedging packs.

Growth rate of Hawthorn hedging

Crataegus monogyna is a very fast-growing shrub, achieving around 40 – 60cm growth per year, which explains the name Quickthorn! Hawthorn hedging is suitable for heights between 1 – 5m, making it a great boundary hedge.

Care advice for Hawthorn hedging

Once established, Crataegus monogyna requires a light trim after flowering - or you can delay pruning until autumn if you wish. We've put together a useful guide page for more information on pruning your Hawthorn hedge.

Suggested planting density for Crataegus monogyna

To find out the specific planting density requirements for Hawthorn hedging, take a look at the product table to find our recommendations.

Our Hawthorn hedging plants can be purchased as pot grown and cell grown all year round, or as bare roots between November and mid-to-late May.

Although most of our Hawthorn hedge plants are grown in the UK by our team of experts – who have generations of nursery-growing experience – occasionally we will need to source plants from dedicated nurseries outside of the UK. At best4hedging, we are proud of our high levels of quality and always do what we can to deliver only the freshest, best-quality plants at the most competitive prices.

The plants all look healthy and a good size. Have planted them and they look OK but of course they need time to establish so the results will be seen later in the year. All looking good so far.

  • Orders £85 & over (ex. VAT) to mainland UK are delivered FREE* (Exceptions apply - see below for Scottish Highlands etc)
  • Orders under £85 (ex. VAT) to mainland UK £9.95
  • At an additional cost, we can deliver to Scottish Highlands & Islands, which we classify as including AB (Aberdeen) and DD (Dundee) postcodes, as well as Ireland, Channel Islands, Isle of Wight and Isle Man. The exact delivery cost is order specific and will need to be quoted by one of our team, so please contact us on 01257 261 243

*For some plants that are too heavy or too tall to be packed in cardboard boxes we use pallet deliveries. In these circumstances, we require a minimum order value of £200 (ex VAT) for free delivery, or you can make a contribution towards the delivery cost. Look out for the information on product pages which explains this further where applicable and if your order is for less than £200 (ex VAT) please call or email us to agree upon a delivery contribution. This requirement only applies to those plants where it is clearly indicated on the product page

Pallet deliveries are always undertaken on an 18-tonne vehicle (similar in size to a standard refuse vehicle). If for any reason you require a smaller vehicle please contact our sales team who can arrange this for you. There will be an additional surcharge applied for small vehicle deliveries

Delivery Timescales

99% of our orders are dispatched within 3 to 7 working days of receipt and most the day after the order is placed. We can do “next day delivery” on many of our products for an additional £12 (incl VAT) but please call on 01257 494 491 before placing your order to check.

We can also deliver on a specified date to suit you. Please indicate the date you would like to receive delivery in the notes section of the checkout (or place your order by phone) and we’ll do our utmost to meet that date.

Occasional hiccups can occur (such as broken down vehicles) and although we are very experienced in logistics we cannot be held liable for costs incurred or inconvenience due to late deliveries - see terms and conditions for more information.

You will receive an email or telephone call confirming the dispatch of your order 24/48 hours before it arrives with you.

Exceptions to our quick turnaround timescale

Pre-orders - if you have placed an order that includes products on pre-order, then they will be dispatched to you as soon as they are available. If your order includes pre-order bare roots or root balls you will be notified once they are being dispatched (root balls from mid to late October and bare roots from early to mid-November).

Root balls - lifting root balls involves the use of complex, heavy machinery, this lifting is carried out twice a week in the root ball season so we do still have a prompt turnaround timescale but if your order has just missed one lifting, it will be a few days before we lift again. We are always happy to confirm when we can deliver to you before you order. The benefit of this method of supplying root balls is that they are always fresh and therefore have a higher success rate than root balls that are stored out of the soil.

Weather conditions can affect dispatch - bare root and root ball plants are not lifted if the ground is too cold (it damages the roots) and the delivery of all plants can be affected if the water supply is frozen (because we water all plants before packing). Extremely hot weather can also be challenging and occasionally we hold backorders for species that are particularly vulnerable. We ask our customers to be mindful of bank holidays when couriers are not active.

We'd like to stress that although there are exceptions, the vast majority of our orders are dispatched extremely quickly and we are proud of our logistics developed over many years of delivering plants to tens of thousands of customers.

Returns

We inspect plants carefully before dispatch but accept that very occasionally things may go wrong. 
You can return your plants (within 14 days) for a refund or replacement (we’ll help with the process of returning). If your plants arrived damaged then returns are free of charge. However, we ask that you inform us as soon as possible. If you’d like to return your plants because of a change of plan or if we do not agree that the plants are significantly damaged (the loss of a few leaves in transit or a loose pot on arrival, for example, wouldn't be harmful to the plants), then we may ask you to pay the full or partial return costs if you still wanted to return them. We’re very reasonable and always aim for complete satisfaction as demonstrated by our amazing Feefo customer reviews which can be viewed here.

Should you wish to return any products that you have over-bought, no longer require or purchased in error you will incur both a return cost (different charges for pallets and Boxes) and the original cost of delivery incurred by Best4hedging. Please contact the Service team for charges and/or to organise a return. Plants will be subject to a quality control check from our Nursery upon return before any refund is authorised and processed.

Please note that in the case of damaged plants, if you have not notified us of a problem within 14 days of delivery, we consider you to have accepted the plants and Best4Hedging has no further liability for them should they fail.

You can read more about our returns policy in our terms and conditions here.

We accept all major credit and debit cards. We have also partnered with PayPal to provide a further, secure payment option.

You can order online or over the phone by calling our dedicated Sales & Advice team.
