It makes an excellent inaccessible hedge, impossible to penetrate without pruning sheers. The plant will grow over 8 meters high if left to its own devises, but by trimming every three years it will make the best stock proof hedge.

Description

It makes an excellent inaccessible hedge, impossible to penetrate without pruning sheers. The plant will grow over 8 meters high if left to its own devises, but trimming every three years it will make the best stock proof hedge. The branches are extremely spiky. Over the last five years we have not used our farm hedge trimmer so often and we have noticed how beautiful the blossom is in early spring. The fruit berries or ‘sloes’ are black and when ripe can be added to Gin to produce a popular drink known as ‘ Sloe Gin’. Blackthorn will grow in any reasonable soil type.
