When you receive your Copper Beech Root Ball, it will need to be planted within a couple of weeks or so and must be well-watered during this time. Do not allow the soil to dry out- this will more than likely damage the roots altogether.̴Ì?
It's quite a low maintenance plant and should only need to be pruned once/twice a year if looked after well. Feel free to give it a tidy-up in June, but we generally recommend sticking to trimming your Beech hedging at the end of Summer (around August time). This will ensure the hedge has enough time to recover before Winter.
It also tolerates hard pruning as it has a relatively fast growth rate and can easily, quickly, recover.
