Garden Trees

There is one thing for sure a Tree is for life!

A garden without a tree no matter how small, just isn't a garden.

Some of us are fortunate to have plenty of space to plant trees. Whether a Grove, Coppice or a small stand. A Beautiful single specimen, a tree in a container or group of just 3  there is a tree out there for every ones situation.

Trees can be as small as say less than one metre or get to grow to 30 metres+!

At the nursery we do like our trees and you will find a good range.

  • Tree planting season is usually from October - March.
  • Trees can be planted all year round but need a lot more care to establish if planted in the Summer period.
  • We love to help you find something thats going to work for you, so please visit and hopefully we can advise you.
  • We can also deliver them. Unfortunately we don't provide a planting service, however, we do have some experts we can put you in touch and get it planted successfully.

Please find below a selection of trees we are stocking this season. Please be aware this is a guide and some varieties may not be available all of the time.

AGM (Award of Garden Merit) means this is a recommended choice by the RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) and has performed well in trials.
