Trees which make a visit to the nursery worthwhile include Quercus dentate Carl Ferris Miller with its huge leaf and the multi-stemmed Amelanchiers. Others include the lilac flowering Paulowina tomentosa Hulsdonk, the multi-stemmed Prunus accolade and the fantastic autumn color of the Acer rubrum October Glory and Brandywine.

We have also planted native multi-stems such as Corylus avellana, Acer campestre, Betula pendula, Viburnum opulus and Holly to name a few

Quality

We ensure our mature trees are grown and nurtured to the highest horticultural standards. A key component of this process is regular transplanting and/or undercutting. These processes curtail the lateral extension of the root system and force out a mass of fibrous roots close to the base of the stem ensuring their inclusion within the root ball.   The number of times a mature tree has been transplanted (lifting and replanting usually at increased spacing) and undercut (pruning back the roots underground while in situ) during cultivation has a huge influence on the trees ability to survive when it is planting into your garden or property.
