Bare Root Transplants & Hedging

Bare Root Transplants & Hedging

Native trees and shrubs which have been used for centuries as farm hedging are a traditional feature of our rural landscape. But they also have many uses in the garden too. They are ideal plants for defining boundaries, establishing green screens and barriers or simply for making a design statement. And, of course, they provide a haven for wildlife. Our Laurijssen Nursery in South Holland has specialised in the cultivation of bare root transplants and hedging for over three generations. Their 50 hectares of sandy, free draining soil provide ideal growing conditions and they can offer you comprehensive range.

The plants they grow are widely used in landscape and amenity planting as:

  • formal hedging  – Fagus (Beech), Carpinus (Hornbeam), Buxus (Box), Taxus (Yew)
  • informal hedging – Crataegus (Hawthorn),  Prunus spinosa (Blackthorn), and all the other traditional farm hedging species
  • feathered native trees for woodlands and parks – Acer campestre (Field Maple), Alnus (Alder), Prunus Avium (Wild Cherry), and Sorbus aucuparia (Rowan) etc.

For the nurseryman to grow on, we can supply well graded material for lining out or potting on, including evergreen Prunus varieties, as well as top quality bushy Buxus and Taxus. For tree growers we have a full range of  under stocks for grafting. These are carefully graded by diameter either at root-collar or at the height at which they are to be worked. During the bare root season, which runs from late October until Easter, we lift fresh to order and out-load for the UK twice a week. This ensures your plants you receive are super-fresh. And your customers get their bare root transplants and hedging in peak condition for planting.
