Rootballed Hedging Plants

 

Rootballed Hedging Plants are grown outside on our fields at our Nursery. The hedging plants are given sufficient space to produce bushier plants when grown outside over several years. Root Ball Hedging plants are lifted during their dormant period in the cooler months from Autumn through to early Spring (weather dependent) minimising transplant shock.

The hedging plants are lifted with special machinery to ensure minimal damage to the plants and cutting of the roots. Where possible plants are lifted direct to order to minimise the time they are out of the ground. The plants root balls are wrapped in hessian fabric to keep the root ball intact from lifting until planting. The hessian is retained on the root ball at planting and biodegrades over time.

The intact root ball ensures that the plants have a head start in establishing themselves, allowing for quicker growth and establishment. This method is particularly advantageous for larger-scale projects, as it offers a more cost-effective option compared to individually potted plants.

When planting rootballed hedges, proper preparation of the planting area is essential. The intact root system should be placed at the appropriate depth, and the soil should be well-amended and compacted around the root ball to ensure good contact. Adequate watering and care during the establishment phase are crucial to ensure the success of the hedge.

Overall, rootballed hedging provides a practical and efficient way to create attractive and functional hedges. It streamlines the planting process, promotes healthy growth, and contributes to the overall beauty and functionality of outdoor spaces through the creation of well-defined, thriving hedges.

Growing Advice

Further Info

Rootballed plants:

Rootballed Hedging plants are available in bigger sizes from October through to April (weather dependent). These plants are grown in bigger sizes going up to 3 metres in height.

The plants are lifted during their dormant period. This reduces the amount of stress imposed on the plants and increases the chances of successful re-establishment.

Plants are lifted to order to minimise the time they are stored out of the ground before replanting.

Although rootballed plants may seem expensive, many of these plants will be between 5+ years old and will have been root pruned and trimmed many times before they are lifted.

Rootballed Hedging plants tend to be bushier than pot grown plants as they have been out in the field and more exposed to the elements. They are lifted from the field using specialist machinery and the soil rootball is hessian wrapped to protect it.
