Trees - ever fancied growing one in your garden, but worried about it getting too big? They're not all giants and our range features deciduous and evergreen trees for all sizes of garden. Some can even be grown in large containers on the patio.
Of all the conifers, the Korean Fir tree is perhaps the most enchanting. Extraordinary violet-blue cones nestle upright among the dark green foliage from an early age, at a size of just 60cm (2ft). Developing during the summer months, the cones remain a constant fascination right through to late winter. The needles of Abies koreana are wider, more rounded and softer than our native spruces, giving a full conical appearance as the branches twirl around its central stem. This captivating evergreen makes a stunning specimen tree for providing plenty of year round interest. Although this RHS AGM variety can achieve a significant size with maturity, its slow growth habit ensures that it will remain a manageable size for many years. Supplied as a single stem bareroot 20/30cm. Ultimate height: Up to 10m (32'). Spread: 6m (19').More info

Supplied as 50 - 80 cm bareroots (20 - 31"). Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting distance: 30cm (12"). More info
