Blackthorn Bare Root 40-60CM

Price In-store
    Code: 9024076

    Blackthorn is so called due to its spiny thorns and its dark bark colour. Blackthorn is a deciduous shrub that can reach a maximum height of 5m. It boats pretty cream flowers in spring and dark berries, Sloes, in autumn.  Blackthorn will grow in almost any conditions but favours soils which are not too wet or acidic.

    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.
