Hawthorn: The Trusty Foundation

  • Ecological Oasis: It provides shelter and food for birds and insects, enhancing the biodiversity of your hedgerow.

Blackthorn: The Robust Protector

  • Wildlife Benefactor: Its blossoms and fruits (sloes) are valuable food sources for many native species.

Elder: The Gentle Giant

  • Versatile and Vibrant: Elder grows quickly and provides a lush, leafy addition to the hedge, offering shade and shelter.
  • Birds’ Delight: Its berries are a favourite among birds, ensuring a lively and dynamic hedgerow.

Hazel: The Flexible Friend

  • Beneficial and Bendable: Hazel is known for its flexible branches and catkins, which are valuable for local wildlife.
  • Nut Provider: It produces hazelnuts, which are a crucial food source for small mammals and birds.

Dog Rose: The Delightful Touch

  • Soft and Safe: With its non-invasive thorns and beautiful flowers, Dog Rose is safe for animals and adds aesthetic appeal.
  • Winter Sustenance: The hips (fruits) of Dog Rose are important for wildlife, especially in colder months.
