Planting Time
Hedges of deciduous species are planted from mid-October, beech from the 1st November. Planting can continue through the winter (provided the soil is not frozen)until the 1st June(we keep the plants in cold storage, so they do not leaf.) 

Hedges of coniferous species can be planted from mid September to late May, depending on weather conditions during winter where the ground may be frozen.
