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.

Quercus shumardii (Shumard oak) is native to the Atlantic coastal plain and much of south and eastern USA, as far north as southern Canada.

The acorns are unusual, inasmuch that they may take up to three years to mature, reaching up to 30mm in diameter, very much larger than our native English oaks. Grow in fertile, reasonably moist but well drained soils in full sun, or light shade which is marginally preferred. Final height may be as much as 20m with a crown width of some 10m
