It’s hard to believe the year is flying by so quickly and after a super busy season on the nursery even after the start of the year that we’ve had, the year has flown by. Now we are into October and that to us means Tree Month. We have 45 acres of field grown trees and hedging along with a two acre mature tree display park, where our Specimen and Mature trees are displayed, mainly in airpots (which I will be doing a feature on in the coming weeks)

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
