Delivery Info

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 hedge (Crataegus monogyna) description

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.

Best uses for Hawthorn hedging

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.

If you're looking for a readymade native hedge for instant impact, then consider our mixed hedging packs.

Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback and I'm sorry that there were problems with your delivery. I can see that the courier noted that the delivery should have been made on a smaller vehicle but it looks like this delayed the delivery for some reason.

Please accept our apologies for this and I would like to assure you that if any of your plants were to not develop as expected over the coming growing season we will replace them for you, without charge, when the next bare-root season begins next October/November.

Service rating :Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback and I'm sorry to hear there was a problem with the plants received.

I can only imagine that one of our Nursery Team has misread the picking list as swapped the quantities somehow. I know you said that it was not a problem, however if you would like us to rectify this for you just get in touch using the details below and we'll help however we can.

Very prompt delivery. Competitively priced, and nearly the height of shrubs ordered. A shame only a fraction of the Hornbeam were actually alive. Gave them several months just in case, but no sign of any new growth.

Service rating :Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback and I'm sorry to hear that you have experienced a high amount of failures. With bare-rooted plants you would expect a small level of failures, but not as much as that which you describe.

If you can contact us using the details below we will certainly arrange to send our some replacement plants at a convenient time for you. Similarly if there is anything else at all with which we can help please do not hesitate to get in touch.
