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 rare, pretty and fully hardy ornamental tree. Leaves are broadly oval, but with a drawn-out tip, toothed margins and green or gey beneath. Young foliage is a vivid red, contrasting sharply with the mid-green of more mature leaves. Flowers are most unusual, forming a cluster of small, narrow red inflorescences, that mature and ripen to form clusters of red and green pendant seed pods.
