Prunus spinosa - Blackthorn is widely used throughout the UK for good reasons; robust, useful and tolerant. Commonly used to form impenetrable hedging or as a stand alone large shrub/thicket.

The snow white flowers on Blackthorn mark the start of early Spring and appear before the leaves which are green and narrow in shape.

Once pollinated by insects the flowers develop into small dark fruits.

Blackthorn has long spikes and is densely branched - an ideal location for bird nesting.

Our cell grown Blackthorn plants are often used for hedge planting either on their own or mixed with other species such as Crab Apple, Hawthorn, Dog rose etc. at a planting density of 6 plants per metre.

WHAT TYPE OF TREE SHELTER DO I NEED?

If protection is required for the Blackthorn you may wish to consider Tubex Easywraps if you are planting for hedging purposes or Tubex Standard tree shelters if you are planting a woodland.

Find out more about the benefits of tree shelters and information on sizing on our Tree Shelter Guide page.

WEED CONTROL AND MULCHING

Don't forget that good weed control around newly planted trees and shrubs is vital to reduce moisture stress and competition. This will improve plant survival and enhance growth.

You may prefer to use our range of mulch mats and pegs, including our 100% biodegradable BioJute Mulch Mat, in order to avoid having to spray herbicide.

Give your plants the best start possible by using our professional Controlled Release Fertiliser granules when planting.
