We’re almost at the end of bare-root and rootball season and we have already sold out of a lot of our hedging stock. We do however, have a few of our large rootballed trees left and these are a few of our favourites.
Carpinus Betulus Pyramidalis – this Hornbeam is similar to the upright form, Carpinus Fastigiata, but grown specifically in a pyramid shape. It’s a lovely option for a formal, structured garden or someone who prefers a little more framework in their garden. We have these in standard form, with a 1.8m clear stem and 20-25cm girth, total height is approximately 5metres.
Parachute form trees are multi-stem trees with wide spanning, mushroom shaped heads. The extensive head of foliage makes these trees ideal for screening, but they work equally well in large pots, and make spectacular statement pieces. We use them quite often in our design projects where something a little unusual is required. The multi-stems create additional interest below the foliage, especially when paired with some contrasting underplanting like lavender.
Here’s just a few of our favourites, that we love using in both residential and commercial garden design. These are multi-functional trees that you won’t see Read More
Bursting into bloom just when the garden is in most need of some colour, Camellias are quite simply Queen of the winter flowers.
There are numerous species of these evergreen shrubs, but the most commonly grown are Camellia sasanqua, Camellia japonica, and hybrids of these. The young leaves of another species, Camellia sinensis, are actually used to make tea, which lets face it, we would be lost without these days!
Camellia japonica flowers in late winter and early spring, while Camellia sasanqua blooms in autumn and winter, both bringing welcome injections of colour and fragrance.
