New Forest Native Hedging

You may often hear the term Native Hedging Plants; it is a broad term used to describe hedging plants that are native to the UK. The New Forest Native Mix consists of species like Hawthorn, Blackthorn, Hornbeam and Holly.

Hedgerows within the New Forest are part of the heritage and provide invaluable habitat for wildlife. Due to their decline over the past 50 years hedgerows in the area are now protected under Hedgerow Regulations (1997).  This applies to hedgerows that are on or adjoining land used for agricultural, forestry, the breeding or keeping of horses, ponies and donkeys, village greens, common land, SSSIs or Local Nature Reserves which are: 20 metres in length or greater or meet another hedgerow at each end.

Folium and Flos stock a range of native hedging, if there is a specific hedge that you are looking for and it is not, it can be easily sourced. For further information on New Forest Native Hedging, planting, and regulations please click here.
