Carpinus betulus (Common Hornbeam)

Hornbeam is emerging as a more resilient option for Beech in the face of the changing UK climate. Known for its tolerance to different soil conditions and ability to withstand the more frequent wet and waterlogged conditions we are experiencing. The roots of Hornbeam run deep, allowing the plant to extract more ground water once established in the dryer hotter UK summers. With elegant appearance and excellent screening capabilities, Hornbeam is rising in popularity for landscape professionals and garden enthusiasts alike.

Benefits of transplanting

  • Bushier Appearance: Trimming the roots and tops during transplanting results in the growth and development of new branches, making the plant bushier, fuller, and visually more appealing
  • Stronger Immune System: Forces growth of fibrous lateral roots, increasing the surface area for nutrient and water absorption, leading to healthier growth, improved resilience against environmental conditions, and enhanced defense against diseases
  • Improved performance: Creates thicker foliage that acts as a protective barrier against strong winds, sunlight, and noise pollution. Benefiting wildlife by providing a more secure shelter with increased food availability.
