How do you plant the hedgerow collection?
Posted by Dobies Staff on 25 November 2014 11:00 AM

Plant the trees as soon as possible, if there is to be a delay due to soil conditions being unsuitable heel in the plants in a spare piece of ground by digging a hole and firming soil over the roots. Dig the area to be planted ensuring that all perennial weeds have been removed. Prior to planting, stand the plants in a bucket of water for approximately two hours.


Plant a double staggered row, at a spacing of 45cm (18-24") between plants. The second row of five plants are planted 30cm (12") from the first row, planting the plants in the centre of the two plants immediately in front to give a double staggered row. This will produce a thick hedge that can be easily maintained at a height of around 180-213cm (6-7ft).
