Bare Root Alder
(Alnus glutinosa)

Alnus Glutinosa is a distinct plant that attracts many species of birds and insects each year, with its wonderful, dense, bushy nature that makes it ideal for habitats.

Bare root Alder plants are only available to buy and plant from November - March, but can be pre-ordered at any time outside of the bare root season.

Alder hedging is a fast-growing, deciduous plant that produces catkins in Spring, and wood-like cones in Autumn. It tolerates poor-quality and wet soils, making it a rather durable, hardy natured species. It's the perfect choice when faced with a waterside or coastal garden.

As this is a bare root variant, you will need to plant your Alder as soon as possible after it arrives.

Alder can reach an ultimate height of 5m, with its fast growth rate of 60cm per year.

  • Growth rate: Fast (40-60cm per year)
  • Ideal height: 5m+ tall
  • Soil type: Wet, very wet
  • Exposure: Sheltered, exposed, coastal, inland
  • Aspect: Full sun
  • Evergreen foliage? No

As soon as your Alder Bare Root hedging is received, place it into a bucket of water for at least 2 hours. The roots must be wet before planting, and the plant hole should be drenches both before and after planting, too. Do not let the bare root dry out as it will need plenty of water to develop and thrive.̴Ì?

Regarding maintenance, only trim Alder hedging in the late Autumn as to not remove any new growing shoots- even though it is deciduous, you will find that the plant begins producing some new shoots during Winter.̴Ì?

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.
