This classic English hawthorn is a beautiful addition to a garden, with flowers which run the gamut from red to white, passing through pink as they go. With large, glossy green leaves, it makes a beautiful tree which can become a hedge if planted close together. Whilst the fruit may look delicious, it can cause mild stomach upset if ingested, and thus is best avoided.

Caring and Maintenance

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 8m between rows

Suited to almost all, well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in an exposed or sheltered location in full sun.
Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Autumn is the best season for planting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.
