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.
Perfect for smaller gardens, Prunus litigiosa has a distinctly upright and columnar habit, taking up very little space. Produces masses of pure white flowers in spring, each hanging on its own stem, and each flower has pendant stamens, the overall effect being most distinctive and very pretty. Fully hardy and easy to grow in fertile, moist and well drained soil. H: 3m
Prunus maackii Amber Beauty is a really good alternative to the Thibetan cherry (Prunus serrula) on account of its gloriously shiny golden orange bark which will brighten the garden all year round. Small, fragrant white flowers in spring and small cherry-like black fruit in late summer. Plant in full sun or light shade on any decent garden soil. Easy to grow and fully hardy, H:6-8m
