Ornamental trees

We stock a large range of ornamental trees, to suit all gardens small and large.  Other than during the early winter period, our trees are containerised into pots, ranging from 7.5 litres to 20 litres.  The great majority of our trees are 6 to 8 feet tall and will readily fit into an estate car.

We are happy to deliver trees, charges being based on the return mileage from the nursery.
