When your Copper Beech Bare Root is delivered, make sure you place it straight into a bucket of water for at least 2 hours, as the roots must be wet before planting. Ensure you drench the planting hole before, too, and don't forget to continually water the plant fairly throughout its developing growth.
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.
