Growing Calendar for Rosa rubiginosa-Sweet briar-Hedge
Delivery: Early November to Early May
A beautiful native rose with sweet scented foliage on prickly arching stems and fragrant pink flowers that bloom for most of the summer.
Flowers are followed by scarlet hips in autumn which make excellent winter food for birds. Hedges within gardens create a softer, more wildlife friendly boundary and can provide a great seasonal display of flowers, berries and autumn colour.
Flowers: June- September
Height: 5-6ft/1.5-2m 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.
