Sycamore Tree which is also known as Acer Pseudoplatanus, is a large tree that is fast growing and establishes rapidly. It has dark green leaves and yellow-green pendent flowers followed by red winged fruit flowering from April to June which will add some colour to your garden.
Is this Hedging Plant Ideal for where I will be planting it?
This Acer Pseudoplatanus is a fast-growing tree that is perfect for coastal areas where it will be exposed to strong winds. This fast growing tree is ideal for a windbreak and is perfect if you need to fill or cover a gap in your garden quickly. It will grow in either chalky or clay soil and although prefers full sun, it can also grow in partially shaded areas. Sycamore like to grow in moist well drained soils, disliking wet soils and grow better in cooler places in the country. It is a hardy plant and should be able to cope with temperatures down to -15° C (approx.)
(Also available in other sizes: 60-80cm and 80-120cm)

How Many Hedging Plants will I need?
Here at Crowders, if you are growing a hedge, we suggest each hedging plant should be 12-18 inches/30-45cm apart in a single row which works out at about 3 per meter. If you require a thicker hedge you would require 5 plants per meter which you would plant staggered, and the front row 12-18 inches/30-45cm apart.
How are bare root plants measured?
Bare root hedging plants are measured by their height in centimetres from the ground to the top of the plant and are approximate. For Example, a bundle of 40-60cm, are 25 whips ranging between 40-60cm tall. Choosing a size is dependent on individual requirements.
What are Bare Root Hedging Plants?
Bare Root Hedging Plants are usually sold in bundles of individual plants or whips as they are also called. Bare Root plants are not potted plants, the roots are bare, hence where the name bare root comes from. Bare Root plants are sold by Crowders in bundles of 25, so if the product title has x25 on the end, this means those plants will be Bare Root and they will arrive altogether in their x25 bundles in a bag.
When Can I Expect Delivery?
Bare root is dug to order so is not available for immediate dispatch the next day once the order has been placed. Once you have placed an order for bare root, we will then order it with our nursery. Your Bare root Plants will then take on average about 7 working days, until they are ready to be dispatched to you. Please note, this may take longer at the start of the season, as this is usually the busiest time for us or in cold weather as the ground will be frozen! Once they have been dispatched, they will be with you in the next few working days, depending on the delivery option you have chosen.
