Gourmand Hedge

Aims: The gourmand hedge is a real treat for both the eyes and the taste buds! It will enchant adults and children alike as they harvest its delicacies. Thanks to this hedge you will now be able to make your own jams and adorn your dishes with a touch of originality.

Adult Height: Up to 4m, take care to grow plants of similar adult size next to each other. To make harvesting easier it is a good idea to prune.

Period of interest: Primarily the summer and autumn at the time of fruiting.

Planting distances: Dependant on the plants chosen (see the table below).

Mulch: To avoid weeding, think to install Weed Control Fabric before planting.
Available widths: 1m05 / 1m25 / 1m50 / 2m10 / 3m25

Pruning: The gourmand hedge will be at its best if not pruned. However pruning can be useful to encourage fruiting and to control volume.
