In May the entire hedge will be covered in clouds of white blooms white give way to dense foliage over the thorny stems and by autumn the well know sloes have formed and will be ready for picking. Blackthorn is well loved by british wildlife for the cover it provides and the fruit is appreciated too - not forgetting it can be used jams, jellies and sloe gin! Height: 4m (13'). Spread: 4m (13'). Planting Distance: 25cm (10"). (4 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plants in spring, taking care not to mound mulch up against the stems.
