Here are the hedges that shield for insight. And you do not have to choose Tuja.
For a fresh garden owner it may be the cleanest nightmare to choose shielding and hedge plants for the plot. Because there is so much to choose from.
Should you go for a hedge that is green all year long?
However, should you bet on a deciduous hedge?
Do you want a free-range variant, or do you want a clip hedge?
Do not just think about the ornament and utility when choosing a hedge – you should also think about the amount of time you will spend on the years to come.
Do you neglect the hedge and allow it to grow to unhealthy heights, you can quickly get your neighbor on your neck. Wild-growing hedges are a kime for indivisible neighboring people.
High and tight hedge
– Norway is divided into plant zones from H1 to H8.
– A plant in climate zone H8 can be planted in all zones, while a plant in climate zone H5 can be planted in zones H1 through H5.
The conditions for growth and wintering vary greatly over small distances with local variations. It will f. for example, it is possible to plant an H4 plant in H5 areas that have warm and hot waxes, f. along a warm and warm house wall. The H-zone division must therefore be taken with reservation also because the plants vary even within the genes.
– See the zones on the map of the plantation. no. Search for honesty zones.
According to Tonje Bergh in the Information Office for Flowers and Plants, it is important to think about the purpose of the fence.
If the goal is to prevent access, the hedge should be relatively high – and tight.
The architecture and type of home can give you a pointer on what kind of hedges that will fit you well, according to Bergh.
– I think it’s important that you choose a hedge belonging to your house. If you have a funky shower, you can fit it with a tight and modern pantyhose or tire hanger, but to an old swiss villa I think it suits a hedge of linden or beech – but of course this is about taste and pleasure..
You should know a bit about the popularity of the hedge you choose, it must fit where you live.
Much is imported, and then the plants are not adapted to the climate. It’s boring if two-three plants in the fence die during the winter.
Therefore, it is possible to buy so-called E-plants chosen for the Norwegian climate, Bergh says.
Five Top-Cut Hedges
Ton Bergh draws these favorites among cut hedges:
Beehive (Carpins betulus)
Beautiful plant to use for hedge.
Grows slowly and may need 6-8 years to get two feet high. Suitable for hedges, but only hardened to H4. Fine autumn colors.
American Cactus (Crataegus intricata)
The Hawthorn is suitable for hedges, despite thorns. It is hardy and manages the H6-H7. It has white flowers, red berries and has beautiful autumn colors.
Beech (Fagus sylvatica)
The book is well suited in southern Norway and along the coast to Sør-Troms. It has beautiful autumn colors. Beech is also a good option. It loses the leaves late, and is therefore nice in the winter as well.
Alperips (Ribes Alpine)
Classic, old city hut that does not get so high. Resists pollution well and is hardened to H7.
May be in shadow.
Lind (Tilia cordata)
Common small-leaf fountain is hardened to H5. It does not like so much wind. It has a beautiful green color in the spring and can stand for many years and can withstand strong pruning.
– Of these, beech or beech is my favorites. Even though they are both deciduous, they keep the brown leaves all winter so you can not see it. And when the new leaves spring out in the spring, they unite the brown leaves, and you get a hedge that is always dense and fine even though it’s deciduous, “Bergh says..
These hedges are extraordinary if you want a free hedge – and a hedge that blossoms, according to Tonje Bergh:
Very hardy plant that can withstand drought and likes to stand in full sun. Blossoms in May / June. The degree of skill varies slightly depending on the variety.
The leaves will have beautiful colors in the fall.
Acid and syrup are too many synonymous with summer and are well-suited.
Junisøtmispel (Amelanchier Spicata)
Junisøtmispel is a good choice in windy places.
It blooms in May and gets black berries and beautiful colors in the fall. Ready for H6 (H7).
Cutting mines (Philadelphus)
Magnificent white flowers with delicious scent.
Withstands half shadow, but gets most flowers in full sun. Hardy in southern Norway and Nordland.
Getting nice, black berries like the birds like. Beautiful autumn-colored leaves.
Alternatives to the home
Hilde Poppe, gardener in the Plantation, tips the following good hedges if you are keen to shield for transparency.
Although Tuja still sells in buckets and forks, there are actually alternatives – if one should be in doubt.
– Barlind is, in my view, better, even if it is not so high. It grows fast too, she says.
She also draws Buksbom. Nor does this get so high, but it gets dense and nice.
Cypress can also work well if you want to shield for transparency. Awe with this is that it is not so hardy.
– Liguster, alperips, blank missions can also be good alternatives. Beech beech is also high and shades well, concludes Hilde Poppe.
Choices of choice
It may be wise to choose when there is so much fine on the market. Remember that free-range hedges take a little more space than cut hedges – but in return they can usually offer beautiful flowering.
Cut hedges provide a smooth, thin wall and can be a nice contrast or supplement to perennials, roses and other growths with soft shapes and strong colors..
A hedge that is cut can be shaped as you wish.
– But make sure that it is always narrowest at the top, or at least as wide at the top as at the bottom. If it gets too wide up to below it could prevent light entry to the lower branches, and it could lead to a slight hedge, according to Tonje Bergh.
Are you careful about the crop work in the first few years, the hedge becomes tight and fine. But in general, a hedge does not need much care, except you should be well at the start. You should cut it once or twice a year, depending on the type of hedge you have.
Remember to fertilize the hedge plants once in the spring with full fertilization, Bergh advises.
