Lightly prune the roots of the bare-root plants with secateurs to encourage vigorous new growth.
Cut a V-shaped trench as deep as the plant roots. Ensure it's straight by using a taut line.
Insert plants into the trench at 45cm spacings – this is suitable for most hedging plants.
Ensure plants are at the same depth they were previously and tread soil in around their roots.
