  • HEIGHT AND SPREAD - Supplied in their dormant state, Carpinus grows at 1-2ft per year and can reach up to 25m+ at full maturity, but can be pruned to a relatively low form of 1m if required.
  • PLANTING TIPS - Bare-Root hedging is typically planted in a double staggered row of 5 plants per metre. Evergreen plants are generally planted to less density than deciduous plants, such is the nature of their dense foliage.

Carpinus betulus is commonly known as 'Hornbeam' and is an extremely popular UK native hedge that displays stunningly bright green foliage with deep veins in spring along with newley formed catkins that turn in to fruit for birds and wildlife. In Autumn/Winter the leaves turn brown/copper but stay on the tree to give adequate cover and shelter for wind and wildlife.

Hornbeam prefers well-drained normal soil, exposed inland or coastal. Carpinus grows at around 1-2 feet per year but can be pruned to a manageable size.
