Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy'

Eastern Redbud

  • A compact tree for small gardens, creating colour in every season
Here's a fabulous slow-growing tree that's perfect for small gardens.

An added bonus is the smattering of pretty pink-purple flowers in the spring if the tree is positioned in a warm and sheltered spot. A real eye-catcher wherever you grow it, 'Forest Pansy' can be grown as a small tree or as a large shrub - either way, you'll love it! Height and spread: 2-9m (6-30ft).

Katsura Tree

Cercidiphyllum japonicum

 Customer Rating
  • RHS Award of Garden Merit
Don't be afraid of growing trees in your garden; they aren't all great big oaks and cedars. Cercidiphyllum certainly isn't. Enjoy its attractive foliage and see if you can decide what the leaves smell of. Is it toffee apple? Candy floss? Just mix a few bags of ericaceous compost into the soil on planting, and it'll virtually take care of itself. Height and spread: 10m (32').

Cherry 'Iford Flowering'

Prunus, Ornamental Cherry

 Customer Rating
A fantastic opportunity to plant this stunning, historic tree in your own garden! At the turn of the 19th century Harold Peto, architect and garden designer, found a small and completely pendulous pale shell pink flowering cherry on one of his plant collecting trips to the East. He named it the Iford Cherry and it was planted on the Iford terraces and trailed down the terrace banks and along the paths creating a truly magnificent sight by all accounts of the time. In 1999 the present owners of Iford Manor decided to propagate from the only surviving tree which by then had only one living branch which was no thicker than a pencil. Graft wood was taken and the tree died a few weeks later. Three trees were raised from the grafts and became the mother wood for the trees now for sale.

This delightful and historic tree is ideal for growing in a container or as a small tree in the garden. It flowers in early spring and has a marvellous bronze/red leaf colour during the Autumn. Decorative Tree Height to 1-1.5m. Flowers early April.

Crab Apple 'Royalty'

Rootstock: M6. Height and spread: 3m (10').

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 1 year.
Estimated time to best yields: 3 years.
