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.
Vigorous, deciduous conifer. Beautiful bright apple-green needles when young. Small erect cones. Leaves turn to a wonderful warm golden-yellow in autumn before shedding. Extremely hardy. Happy in either full sun sun or partial shade. H: 8-10m
Sweet gum. A lovely variation on this excellent hardy ornamental tree. In its early years the habit is pyramidal but later widening somewhat to become more conical. The crown is densely crowded with glossy green palmate leaves that in autumm will turn to rich tones of red, gold and yellow. Very robust and easy to grow, tolerating most soils and aspects. Fully hardy. H:8-10m
Osage orange A very rare, medium sized deciduous tree or perhaps a large shrub if allowed to develop a multi-stem habit. The fruit is roughly spherical, bumpy, inedible, large, 8cm to as much as 15 centimetres in diameter turning bright yellow-green in the autumn. The leaves are oval, some 8 to 13cm long, dark glossy green, turning bright yellow in autumn. prefers deep and fertile soil and full sun. H: approximately 6-8m
Very fine evergreen large shrub or small tree. With rounded glossy green foliage, velvety red beneath. Bears a succession of short-lived but stunningly beautiful pure white, fragrant flowers over several weeks during summer. Plant in full sun and in moist, fertile but reasonably well drained soils. Fully hardy. Final height and spread about 3m
Beautiful deciduous tree. Profusion of fragrant cup-shaped white flowers before leaves appear in the spring. Grow in full sun and fertile, moist but well drained soil. Fully hardy. Potential height quite substantial, but 5-6m most probably in Norfolk.
Large deciduous shrub to small tree, producing numerous star-shaped white flowers opening from pink buds in early spring. Native to mountain woodlands in Japan. Best in a sheltered position and preferably not on chalky soil but otherwise it is very tolerant of other soil types and is happy in full sun or dappled shade.
Magnolia stellata 'Royal Star, will grow to 5m in height but probably less here in Norfolk due to our generally dry climate.
Sweetbay Magnolia. An extremely fine and sadly all-too rare ornamental tree, grown for its very large fragrant creamy-white flowers and correspondingly large leaves. Effectively fully hardy in all but the very coldest parts of the UK, happy down to -10C. Magnolia virginiana will be happiest in fertile and reliably moist soils in full sun or some dappled shade. H: 6-8m
A wonderful buttery yellow flowering magnolia - one of the best, hardiest yellows. Fully hardy and flowering just before the leaves appear in spring, so the first frosts should be avoided. Introduced by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The numerous flowers are upright and large. The large shrub/small tree, oval in shape, is pretty slow growing and prefers partial shade or sun. H: 6m.
Naturally dwarf and upright ornamental tree. Dense clusters of waxy white flowers in late spring emerge from deep carmine red buds, making this an excellent pollinator for apple trees.. Masses of bronze-red fruits persist well into winter, invaluable for wildlife or perhaps winter flower-arrangements. H: 2.5m
A very pretty ornamental tree, ideal for smaller gardens, offering both abundant flowering in spring and very ornamental fruiting later in the year. Heavily laden branches glowing with butter coloured fruit each autumn make this a stunning tree.
The masses of white flowers in spring add to its charm. The fruit of Malus 'Butterball' are ideal for making crab apple jelly.
Lovely unusual crab apple, producing small, rose-hipped shaped, yellow-lemon fruit in the autumn and often staying on the tree until Christmas. The tree is a wonderful spreading specimen and is one of the best persistent yellow crabs of which there are few. April blossom is equally beautiful for a natural setting. H:4m after 10 years. Hardy.
