The copper beech inspires as a natural border of your garden with its intense colour. It forms dark red and shiny leaves along the fine stems. The following year after planting, these leaves take on a brown colour. It is best to plant the hornbeam hedge in a well-drained and humus-rich soil and avoid excessively wet soil. The copper beech does not tolerate closed ground. Even if the leaves of the Fagus sylvatica Purpurea wither towards winter, they still remain attached to the branches and thus continue to form a decorative picture. Prune the copper beech hedge twice a year at the end of May and the end of August. In this case, the Fagus sylvatica Purpurea will grow densely. Alternatively, find a suitable, not too sunny day around 21 June as the longest day of the year.
Delivery of the Blood Beech hedge element:
Fagus sylvatica Purpurea consists of 4 densely grown plants in the size 100 (length) x 40 (width) x 200cm (height). The plants have already had several years of good and careful care and have been pruned regularly. As a result, they have developed an unusually strong root system, which has also been regularly pruned. The hedge is supplied in a biodegradable box that can be planted at the same time and will decompose by itself. You can also purchase the beech hedge element in decorative planters made of wood, steel or polystone. You will receive a free drip system for irrigation with every hedge.
Note: Due to the size and weight (150 kg per element), the elements must be delivered by a forwarding agent. The costs for this depend on the quantity and distance, therefore we would like to ask you to contact us by telephone before placing your order so that we can discuss the delivery modalities.
