Beech, Yew, Hornbeam and Box hedging are best left to establish for a year before pruning.

Once the plants are settled in, lightly trim the sides to give the hedge some shape – usually leave the top leaders until they have reached the height you want the hedge to be

Many species benefit from hard pruning by a third or more at planting or by early spring after planting, to encourage basal growth. These include all our native hedge mixes, Hawthorn, Blackthorn, Privet, Lonicera nitida, Cotoneasters, and Laurel.
