Fruit / Wildlife Hedging
My deliver of 70 bare-root hedging plants arrived today - which I hope to plant this weekend. However, I was wondering if anyone could offer some advice on how best to configure my hedge...
I have bought the following:
- Blackthorn (25)
- Elder, Common (15)
- Cherry Plum (10)
- Hazel, Common (20)
I want to create a double row using the 'W' format.
Am I best to plant the various types in 'clumps' - ie all the blackthorn, then all the elder etc? Or can I mix them up a bit more to add more colour / interest?
