Guelder Rose

Posted: 29/01/2014 at 18:38

Common names are very confusing. Guelder rose isn't a rose and looks nothing like one. No prickles for a start. It's not even in the same family. I don't know where it got the name guelder rose

I'm always very pleased with mine, lovely autumn colour as well

Transplanting established hedges using machinery

I think it would be a waste of time. You'd have to cut them right back because the remaining damaged roots wouldn't be enough to sustain the tops or prevent rocking in the wind, so you'd lose the height anyway. 

With the amount of root damage from mechanical excavation, almost guaranteed to chop through loads of roots, they'd probably die anyway.

and then you'd be a year behind with a new hedge. If you look around the garden you may find some young ones to transplant.

Hi Ahmadmirza.

Viburnum opulus, the native guelder rose, is excellent. Various cultivars (different varieties) of this have been developed but are not as good as the original species. Avoid any with 'roseum' or 'sterile' after the name, or 'the snowball bush. They all have much larger flowers but no berries

Lovely plant if you're sure it's big enough. 

Those Cotoneaster 'Cornubia' are lovely aren't they.
