Species Description

Hawthorn is a vigorous, dense thorny shrub that provides excellent security when used as a hedging plant, but more importantly provides an abundance of blossom during May which attracts many invertebrate pollinators.

Habitat Advice

Alder thrives in wet poor soil and if desired can be pruned during winter or early spring.
