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 substantial, handsome tree, a very good choice as a stand-alone specimen and for dramatic autumn colour. Fully hardy and robust, this is a form of 'pin oak' with large rich green leaves, deeply serrated with each serration ending in a fine 'pin'. Foliage turns vivid red later on, a show that may persist form some weeks, and the spent foliage persists through the winter in a rich cinnamon-brown. Best in rich and fertile soils that are reasonably moist - indeed even quite wet soils are well tolerated.. Fully hardy. Final height will be in the range 10-12m
Rare deciduous tree, sometimes grown as a multi-stemmed shrub.. Native to the Caucasus, north-east Turkey and Armenia. Very large dark green leaves, up to 20cm in length, changing to yellow in autumn and then to brownish-copper in winter. Grow in full or light shade on moist, fertile but well drained soils. Fully hardy. H: 4-6m.
Very handsome long lived deciduous tree, capable of reaching great age and size. Prefers full sun. H: can reach 35m when mature. Lobed and nearly sessile (short-stalked) leaves. Flowers in the spring and acorns (2cm long with a peduncle or stalk) in the autumn. Eventually produces wonderful gnarled branches. Hardy
Quercus shumardii (Shumard oak) is native to the Atlantic coastal plain and much of south and eastern USA, as far north as southern Canada. A very handsome ornamental tree, capable of becoming very large indeed, given a couple of centuries of course, and noted for the large leaves (up to 20cm in length) which are dark green, turning to rich red late in the year. 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
A rare hybrid oak, grown for its narrow habit and fiery red autumn foliage. Extremely hardy, and happy on any reasonably fertile and moist soil in full sun or light shade. Fully hardy, Final height: about 10m and width about 4m.
A very rare, hybrid oak that has a distinctive upright and narrow habit. Leaves are mid-green and notably larger than our native English oaks. Large acorns up to 2.5cm across. Extremely robust and easy to grow on any fertile and reasonably moist soils, useful as an unusual specimen, or a screening plant. Fully hardy. Approximate height:10m and width 4m
A vigorous and fully hardy ornamental tree, noted for intense yellow young stems in winter. May be grown as a tree or regularly cut back in spring to form a shrub or pollarded tree. Fully hardy. Plant in full sun and moister soils, although chalk and clay are both tolerated, as well as coastal sites. Final height 4-6m
Very lovely ornamental tree or large shrub. The young green shoots turn purple as they age with a striking white bloom. The male catkins have red anthers that turn yellow as they mature. Allow to grow into a mature tree or prune back each spring to control size; pollarding can also look very attractive, creating a sensational focal point in the garden in winter, Plant in full sun or pretty much any sort of decent garden soil that is moist and well drained. Both chalk and clay conditions are well tolerated. Final height: about 5m
Probably the largest living organism ever. Individuals in western USA have reached over 100m in height and ages of possibly up to 4000 years, native range restricted to the Sierra Nevada. Evergreen and hardy, a height of perhaps 30m is probable in East Anglia.
