Growing Calendar for Fagus sylvatica Atropurpurea-Copper beech-Hedge
Delivery: Late November to Late April
Beech makes a superb formal hedge when trimmed annually. The dry leaves are held on the plant over winter for extra interest.
Beautiful young leaves of Copper Beach are soft red turning to a rich, deep purple. Beech makes an ideal windbreak. Hedges within gardens create a softer, more wildlife friendly boundary and can provide a great seasonal display of flowers, berries and autumn colour.
Height: over 36ft/12m if unprunned.
Even a small hedge can create your own little wildlife habitat. They can be close clipped or left a bit wilder, a mix of native varieties will give different periods of interest and a good nesting and winter food source for birds.
Planting distances vary from 30-60cm/1-2ft depending on the variety and the size of hedge required.
For a denser hedge plant a staggered double row with 38cm/15in between rows and 45cm/18ins between plants. All our hedging will be delivered as bare rooted bundles, with approximate height of up to 100cm/3.5ft depending on the variety.
Plant size is approximately 45-60cm on arrival.
