Blackthorn Blossom

Hedgerows are a Lifeline for Wildlife

As Blackthorn flowers in early Spring, around March, it is a lifeline for overwintering pollinators who are starting to emerge

Blackthorn Berries

 The berries from Blackthorn are known as sloes which are a foragers delight and are used to flavour gin in the autumn, ready as a tipple in time for consumption at Christmas! 

It is well known for attracting wildlife and pollinating insects and so is perfect for a wildlife hedgerow
