“You only want to plant a hedge once so buy the best and invest in quality English grown plants”
Purple Beech makes a beautiful large specimen tree or is often seen in hedge form where its purple foliage can be used to great effect. Like its green cousin it dislikes cold wet soils.
Our Purple Beech hedge plants are English grown from genuine English origin stock. They are established and fully graded transplants, not cheaper or inferior seedling stock. The difference in quality is clear. Our Green Beech transplants have been grown for 2 years, producing a more fibrous root system enabling them to establish more easily with a higher rate of success. Our Purple Beech transplants are also more heavily branched giving you a more established looking hedge.
Some suppliers use the word “native” to describe their Purple Beech plants but this does not necessarily mean that they are English grown or of English origin. Many are imported from continental Europe. As growers with over 40 years of growing experience we are happy to pass on our knowledge and advice. Don’t compromise on quality. When you want the best choose quality English grown, English origin Purple Beech from Botanica.
