Pleached Trees – Planting & Care

Pleached trees are an elegant and simple way of creating a formal looking hedge above the fence line without taking up too much space.
Pleached trees are trees which have been specially trained across a framework.  They create an effective and attractive contemporary screen as they are slimmer than normal free forming trees and so work well in gardens where a neat hedge above the fence-line is necessary.
Maintenance is minimal, just regular watering and pruning them a couple of times a year.
Paramount Plants are a leading UK plant centre specialising in the supply of Pleached and Full Standard Screening Trees and many other ideas for Trees and Shrubs to create screening.

Planting Tips

With plants you need to be consistent – pick a day each week when you inspect your plants, weed the beds, feed the plants and water them (normally when you mow your lawn each week). Putting in a few hours each month during the growing period (April to September) will go a long way to ensuring the plants survive and prosper in your garden. BE REALISTIC – If you do not think you are able to put in the commitment then hire a gardener to do this for you.
