Hi

My Hornbeam hedging whips have just arrived, the supplier has closed for the weekend so I cant ask them this question ...

Does Hornbeam have thorns? .. Im not quite if it does, so im a bit worried they have sent me the wrong plants.

If anyone knows I would be extremely grateful, as we were planning on getting them in the ground this weekend.

Thankyou :)

    Hornbeam doesn't have thorns, just small leaf buds pointing into the stems.

    If it has thorns its probably hawthorn; or blackthorn.

    Thankyou, I thought that would be the answer ... I'm annoyed with the supplier and I hope he replaces them with the right plants!!
