Enlarge Picture Enlarge picture

Young Purple Beech hedge. Display hedge at the Garden Centre.

Native plant with superb foliage, deep purple leaves turning rich copper in autumn. Not suitable for heavy or wet soil. If a Beech hedge is trimmed in late summer, the leaves remain on better during the winter. Do not plant Beech in a frost pocket as it will get damaged.
Tree Guards are generally not recommended for Beech plants as they can encourage Beech Aphids.
HEDGE Retains copper foliage throughout the winter. Trim July or August. For hedges 3ft (90cm) upwards. Plant 9-18ins (23-45cm) apart or for a denser or stock-proof hedge plant in a staggered double row with 15ins (38cm) between rows and 18ins (45cm) between plants.
TREE 30ft x 20ft (9m x 6m) in 20 years, ultimate height 100ft (30m).
