When is the best time of year to plant?

At best4hedging we have a huge choice of different species and root types. Our vast range includes hedging plants that can be planted year-round as well as hedge plants that can only be planted during the dormant season – Autumn to Spring.

Our pot grown and cell grown hedging plants can be purchased and planted year-round so you do not need to worry about what time of year it is.

Our bare root and root ball hedge plants are available from late autumn to spring, as they can only be planted when dormant. For some species, the dormant period can be extended through the use of cold storage. Any concerns regarding planting times are already covered as we only start to despatch bare root and root ball plants when they are ready to be planted. The only exception to this rule is Box (Buxus sempervirens). Box root balls can be purchased and planted year-round due to their strong and stable root system.

For information on planting – see our best4hedging YouTube channel for our quick, how-to plant guides.
