Price In-store
    Code: 9027378
    Alder is a decidious hedging plant which is ideal for the Irish climate - it thrives in wet conditions. It is also fast growing so makes an ideal choice for hedging, and can reach maximum heights of 20m. The Alder boasts pretty yellow catkins in the spring and summer. In Autumn it produces false cones which are a food source for many wild birds. 

    Bare roots trees are at particular risk of the roots drying out, because as the name suggests the roots are exposed. As a result the roots need to remain covered at all times before planting and they should be planted as soon as possible. If you are not planting immediately, check the roots daily to ensure they are not drying out. If they do feel dry, roots can be dipped in water for a few seconds to moisten them up again.

    Bare roots will have a soil line on the stem which indicates the original planting depth – aim to plant as close to this depth as possible.  Ensure the hole is wide enough to easily accommodate the roots which will allow for proper root spread.
