“You only want to plant a hedge once so buy the best and invest in quality English grown plants”


Our familiar native blackthorn or sloe. Spiny deciduous shrub with white flowers, which can often appear as early as  late winter, followed by edible black fruits, 'sloes' in late autumn. Grows to 4m or more. Famous as the main ingredient in 'Sloe Gin'

Our Blackthorn 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 Blackthorn 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 Blackthorn transplants are also more heavily branched giving you a more established looking hedge.

Some suppliers use the word “native” to describe their Blackthorn 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 Blackthorn from Botanica.
