Your hedging plant will be sent directly from our trusted grower. This means that you'll receive a nursery fresh plant which was on the growing table one day, and at your door the following. Our expert nursery has spent decades perfecting the art of watering, feeding, and pruning shrubs and trees, and will do so until hours before they are packed.

A charming feature to the garden, Rosa rugosa is a wonderful hedging specimen that bears beautiful flowers. Below we address its care:

  • Plant between November and March (when the hedge is dormant). Ensure that the area where you are going to plant your hedge is clear and weed-free.
  • Ramanas Rose hedging will grow in almost all moist, well-drained soil and will flourish most in full sun.
  • After planting, it is important to keep the soil moist at all times. While the hedge is young it can be cut back by one third which encourages bushy growth. It can also be trimmed between May and August. When the hedge reaches maturity it can be trimmed twice a year, once in late May and again at the end of August.
  • When planting, you can distance each hedge between 75cm and 90cm apart.
  • Please note, as part of protecting our treasured wildlife, always check for birds nests and other animals that may be in your hedge before you prune.

The key is to regularly water newly-planted plants, at least bimonthly for two months. It is also important to ensure adequate spacing between bushes, which is determined by a shrub's eventual height and spread.

Bare root and containerised plants have differing planting requirements. With bare root, it is important to soak the roots in water for up to two hours before planting, and with containerised plants, you should drench their rootball. For bare root plants, it is also beneficial to prune any woody roots back a few inches, and if you have a containerised plant, you should free any spiralized roots that are growing around the rootball's circumference. When planting, bare root plants need a graft point that is above the soil, but for containerised plants, it is better to have their pot sitting no less than an inch below the ground.

Bare root and containerised plants also share some of their planting needs; dig a hole twice the radius of the rootball, and fill the hole with a mix of compost and garden soil. After this, add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. After providing a generous watering, you can finish with a later of mulch, but keep it from touching your plant's stems.

Apply fertiliser and replace decomposed mulch come spring. Collect fallen leaves in autumn.
