Buying Instant Impact makes it even easier- your plant will arrive on your doorstep fully matured, established, and ready to plant! All the beginning hard work has been done for you- you don't even have to worry about the No. per metre. 1 instant impact trough = 1 metre of hedging.
If you look after it well, your Beech hedging should only need to be pruned twice a year, sometimes only once. The plant can be given a light prune in June if needed, but we recommend leaving the pruning stage until August. This will give the plant enough time to recover and regrow before Winter arrives.
In terms of renovating Beech, you can do so in February, whilst the plant is still dormant. If needing to cut back more than half, do it over two seasons- cut the top and one side the first year, then in the second year, do the other side. Hard pruning can also be carried out as Beech can easily recover with its fast growth rate.
