Hedges can be divided into different categories. On the one hand there are hedges which need to be cut regularly or or left growing wild. On the other hand there are deciduous and evergreen hedges. The care measurements depend on the hedge variety. No matter which hedge variety you want to plant, the planting procedure is always the same.
You can plant hedges from September until the beginning of November. This way the roots will have enough time to ingrain with the warm soil before the first frosts occur. It is not recommended to plant hedges in summer because the evaporation through the leaves and pins is very high during this period. Nevertheless, if you decide to plant your hedges during summer or at end of springtime, you should keep in mind that the care measurements are very high. This is due to the heat and the low rainfall. Consequently, regular irrigation is a duty so that the plants are protected against drying out.
