Bare-root hedging plants
With bare-root plants, it’s essential to ensure the roots are covered and moist at all times.
Pruning after planting
- Cut out any dead, damaged or diseased stems, back to healthy growth
- Remove weak, straggly or crossing stems to stimulate vigorous growth
- Certain plants, including fruit bushes, raspberries and roses benefit from hard pruning straight away, to encourage bushy growth
- Always cut back to an outward-facing bud, to avoid growth becoming congested
