Hornbeam hedge plants boast green catkins which develop into fruits that wildlife,such as birds, adore. As a native species, Hornbeam hedging provides a wonderful habitat for wildlife, giving this stunning hedge additional interest.

Plants arrived without advance warning of dispatch, most were completely bone dry and obviously in desparate need of watering. Temperature on delivery day was 29 deg. and had been for days.
Some plants were 6 feet tall and foliage very sparse. Others were 4 feet and quite well covered with foliage. Anyway, after jolly good soaking, got them all planted and recovery began. The Root Grow Mycorrhizal Fungi gave me confidence that the plants would do well.Several days rain helped and all plants are beginning to leaf up nicely.
Order was completed in full and nothing missing. Can see no reason why the plants shouldn't thrive with a little patience and TLC.
