How tall does gorse grow?
Besides, is Gorse fast growing?
Gorse is not a fast-growing plant; it tends to grow 15-30 cm per annum. However, it will grow up to 2.5m and is particularly recommended for intruder-proof hedging due to the vicious spines.
Considering this, how do you grow gorse?
Drain the pre-treated seeds and sow them thinly in seed trays filled with peat-free compost. Cover them with another 5mm of compost and water thoroughly. Cover the seedtrays with a sheet of glass and shade with newspaper. Place them somewhere bright and warm – a kitchen windowsill or greenhouse, perhaps.
Gorse (Ulex europaeus) is an evergreen shrub with green leaves shaped like conifer needles and brilliant yellow flowers. Flowering gorse shrubs are important in nature since they provide shelter and food for many insects and birds. However, gorse is a tough, tenacious shrub that spreads quickly and can become invasive.
