Hawthorn for all year round interest

Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) is possibly one of our oldest hedging plants. Medieval people knew and respected it and all sorts of folklore is based upon it. Have you ever heard the term "never shed a clout til may is out"? It's not referring to the month of May rather to the prolific white flowers of the hawthorn (may) bush. A hawthorn hedge fulfils many roles.
  • It's prickly - so rather good at deterring intruders
  • Dense stems and foliage provide excellent privacy - even in winter time
  • New leaves, buds and flowers are edible
  • Supports around 300 species of insects
  • Spring flowers are scented and plentiful
  • Brilliantly coloured autumn berries provide food for overwintering birds
  • Haws (or berries) can be used to make a tart jelly which goes well with cold meats. Use hawthorn berries to make wine
Very hardy and easy to grow it's little wonder that hawthorn has featured in Britains hedges for centuries. Ideal for rural gardens field boundaries wildlife gardens and more.
