Beech hedging will grow in almost all well-drained soil and can tolerate both full sun and partial shade.

Beech can be planted from November to March, when the hedge is dormant. Ensure that the area where you are going to plant the hedge is clear and weed-free.


Caring and Maintenance

Should be pruned in winter, just after planting, and for two years after that. On planting, cut back leading shoots and side shoots by one-third, cutting to a well placed bud. Repeat this in the second winter to prevent straggly growth and thicken up the hedge base. Then trim every June after that.

Maintain at 90-180cm (3-6ft) or as taller hedges or screens.
