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.

Hawthorn hedge plants

Ordered and received a hawthorn. On arrival the stem was bent over by 180 degrees and it looked dead. It still looks dead so I assume it is dead. A waste of time and money.

Thanks for your feedback, it is always appreciated and helps us to improve our service to you. I'm sorry that there was a problem with your order, we would be happy to look into it for you: It certainly sounds like your Hawthorn plant was sent in a box that was not big enough. If it has still not come into leaf please send us a photograph to enquiries@best4hedging.co.uk as we'll investigate things for you, thoroughly.

Half the tall branches were broken on two of the three hedges due to being pulled so tight together by cling film on the delivery pallet.

On 17-May-2017 the supplier responded:
Thanks for your feedback and which I'm pleased to hear you were happy with the service received and your Photinia, I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed with your Hawthorn plants. It's a bit double-edged sword I'm afraid. Too loose and the entire plant can move around on the pallet, too tight and some of the secondary and tertiary branches can suffer a little. I'm sure that the plants are, by now, putting on plenty of Spring growth, however should you need any assistance or if they do not thrive as expected please do not hesitate to contact us again, we will help however we can.
