This “edible” hedge is a delight for the eyes and for the taste buds! It will enchant children who will be able to gather the tasty treats on their own! These fruits are ideal for the making of homemade jams. Because of its compact size it will easily fit into a garden or in pots on a balcony.

Height at maturity : Approximately 2 metres.
Highlights : In the summer, at fruiting time.
Spacing : Approximately every 1.50 metres, on a non chalky soil. Although for a screening hedge of one species we recommend to plant every 80 centimetres, in the case of a mixed hedge, the aim is that each plant thrives without being in competition with its neighbour and achieves maximum growth.
Pruning : It is not recommended to prune this hedge.
