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.
A very good choice for smaller gardens as Sorbus commixta 'Carmencita' will only grow to about 4m in height, even after 10 years. Finely cut, glossy green leaves, clusters of white flowers in sprng and lovely showy red berries in autumn, complementing the oranges and reds of the late summer foliage. Fully hardy and very tolerant of a wide range of conditions.
Kite-leaved rowan. Excellent choice for an ornamental tree, with characteristic blue-green foliage, white flowers in spring and then masses of pink fruit which contrast so well with the autumn leaf tints. Highly recommended. H: 4-5m
A small spreading tree from China, with attractive glossy pinnate dark green leaves turning a fabulous purplish-red in the autumn. White flowers in late spring followed by dark pinkish-red fruit. Tolerant of most conditions; fully hardy. AGM. H:5-6m
A rare, small to medium sized deciduous tree tree growing to a height of 4-6m, possibly more, and is in fact the only species of lilac that routinely will grow into a fully fledged tree. Leaves are elliptic-acute, mid-green, much like other lilacs. The strongly fragrant flowers are white or creamy-white, produced in broad panicles up to 30cm in length. Native to eastern Asia, and fully hardy. Plant in fertile soil that is moist and well drained, in full sun or light shade.
Swamp Cyprus. Despite its name this tree will grow very well in any reasonable spot, potentially reaching 20m or more. Deciduous, the leaves open pale green and turn to a rich golden brick-red in autumn before dropping.
A really striking form of lime tree, native to western China. Very large grey-green leaves have distinctive and very ornamental 'ciliate' margins and long drip tips, pale grey fissured bark. Very small fragrant flowers grow in clusters in the spring time. Fully hardy, and probably growing to some 10-15 metres in height eventually.
A very rare, hardy, ornamental tree or large shrub from Sicily, only recently found and now considered threatened with extinction in the wild, considered to be 'Critically Endangered' by the IUCN. Related to elms, Zelkova sicula have most pretty oval leaves 1-5 cm across and will form a lovely ornamental plant. Very little is known about this plant which was first discovered in 1991 and which, due to persistent grazing by goats, has only rarely been seen to flower in the wild.
