Rowan flowers turn into gorgeous orange-red coloured berries within the October and November moths, and the leaves follow with the same colouring before they shed. The handfuls of delicious berries are popular with the birds and can even be eaten by humans as they make lovely jellies and jams.

It is the perfect hedge for providing some gorgeous seasonal interest.

This 40/60cm bare root Rowan plant has an average growth rate, but can reach above 2.5m high when planted in good conditions.

The Sorbus Aucuparia is very tolerant of the classically unpredictable UK weather forecast, and its best to plant in full sun, in normal, well-drained soil.

  • Growth height: Average (20-40cm per year)
  • Ideal height: 2.5m+ Tall
  • Soil Type: Normal
  • Exposure: Coastal, Exposed, Inland, Sheltered
  • Aspect: Semi-shade, Sun
  • Evergreen foliage? No

As it is pot grown, you can easily leave the plant in its pot for a few days/weeks before planting it. Just ensure you keep the plant well-watered, and it gets enough sun. Don't leave it for too long, however, as you don't want the roots becoming root bound.

The Rowan species must be trimmed when the plant enters its dormancy period in late Autumn/early Winter. It is important to trim at this time only, as if cut during growing period, the plant will bleed a white sap that can lead to the plant being open to diseases. We also recommend you do not leave your Rowan hedge to grow exceedingly on its own, and instead give it a trim yearly to retain its strength and shape.

If there is any dead wood, be sure to trim back to the live growth at any time during the year. This will encourage the plant to grow back strong and healthy, with better berry and blossom production, in the following Spring.

Root Types Summary

  • Bare Root
    Bare Root

    Field grown, bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from autumn to spring. We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the season but they can be pre-ordered in summer. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options.

  • Pot Grown
    Pot Grown

    Pot grown plants can be planted year round and make a convenient option. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements.

  • Root Ball
    Root Ball

    Also field grown, root ball plants are scooped out of the ground using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks. They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly.

  • Instant Hedging
    Instant Hedging

    Grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season. Our instant hegding troughs create a dramatic, instant hedge effect.
