Hawthorn hedge plants, also known as Quickthorn, make an attractive native hedge. The mid-green foliage acts as a foil for masses of white, scented flowers in the spring and then for shiny, red haws when autumn arrives. The sharp thorns that adorn the branches make Crataegus monogyna a great intruder deterrent, whilst providing shelter for wildlife.

Hawthorn hedging is a wonderful choice for wildlife interest; it supports over 150 species of insects and is an important source of food for birds. The white blossom that decorates Hawthorn hedges in spring gives off a lovely, delicate fragrance and is very popular with bees.
This variety of hedge plants is perfect for paddock hedging, a cottage garden or informal hedge and landscape hedging. Crataegus monogyna is a versatile, native plant that can be left bushy or trimmed neatly depending on your desired look. With its large spikey thorns, Quickthorn is ideal to use as an intruder deterrent and also makes a useful windbreak, even in the winter months; although Hawthorn is a deciduous variety, the dense branches provide some cover.
Grown alone, Hawthorn hedging creates an attractive and effective screen; however, Quickthorn can also be combined with any number of other native plants for a diverse hedgerow, boasting an array of different flowers, berries and foliage colours. If you're looking for a readymade native hedge for instant impact, then consider our mixed hedging packs.
Crataegus monogyna is fast growing and can achieve on average 40-60cm each year. A Hawthorn hedge is suitable for heights between 1-5m.
Once established, Crataegus monogyna requires a light trim after flowering or you can delay pruning slightly, until autumn. Please view our Hedging Care Advice page for more information on pruning your Hawthorn hedge.
For information on specific planting density related to Hawthorn hedging, please see the product table below. In the 'No. Per Metre' column, you will find our recommended plant density for each individual plant species and root type. For further information, visit our hedge planting density page.
Our Hawthorn hedge plants can be purchased year-round as Pot Grown and Cell Grown Plants, or between November and mid/late May, we offer Crataegus monogyna as Bare Roots, using cold stored plants towards the end of the season.
The majority of our Hawthorn hedging plants are UK grown by our on-hand experts who have generations of nursery growing experience. On the rare occasion that we may need to source Crataegus monogyna from outside of the UK, we endeavour to make sure our suppliers are unbeaten on quality. At Best4hedging, we do our best to ensure that your plants reach you in the freshest condition and that they are of the highest standard, whilst protecting our outstanding prices. Rest assured you can buy Hawthorn hedging online with complete confidence that the standard of service and products you receive will be of the very best quality.
*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
99% of our orders are dispatched within 3-5 working days of receipt and most the day after the order is placed. We can do “next day delivery” on many of our products but please call 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 back orders 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.
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.
