Guelder Rose Hedge - Viburnum opulus

Guelder Rose hedging is a must if you want wildlife in your hedge. It has quite an open growing habit, so is used more as a minor species in a mixed hedge. From August onwards it produces bright red berries. As well as bearing berries, during autumn, the leaves turn yellow, orange, and red.

Its best to plant Bare Root hedging in a double staggered row, and Pot Grown / Rootballed hedging in a single row.

Plant Spacing:
Bare Root. When planting smaller (60cm and below) plants you will need 6 plants per metre, and for the medium size (60cm and above) you will need 5 per metre, and for the larger size (90cm and above) plants you will need 4.5 per meter. 

Pot Grown / Root Balled. When planting smaller (80cm and below) plants you will need 5 plants per metre, and for the medium size (80cm and above) you will need 4 per metre, and for the larger size (120cm and above) plants you will need 3 to 3.5 per meter.
