Holly 'Argentea Marginata'

Ilex aquifolium, Ilex aquifolium 'Argentea Variegata'

In time, Holly 'Argentea Marginata' forms a magnificent, conical evergreen tree that makes a superb specimen for year round interest. This attractive female variety is ideal for woodland areas and low maintenance gardens. Ultimate height if left unpruned: 15m (50'). Ultimate spread if left unpruned: 4m (12'). More info

Arbutus unedo (Large Plant)

Strawberry Tree

This striking shrub makes a superb focal point for year-round interest. Its leathery, evergreen foliage and peeling, cinnamon brown bark form a superb backdrop for the clusters of small, white, urn-shaped flowers in autumn. The dainty blooms give way to scarlet red fruits that only fully ripen in the following year, as a new set of flowers emerge.

The edible fruits of Arbutus unedo have a sharp aftertaste when eaten raw, but can be made into jams and preserves for a sweeter, guava-like flavour. This neat, compact variety is an ideal specimen shrub for a sheltered position. Although perfectly hardy once mature, Arbutus trees will appreciate a layer of fleece for winter protection when young. Perfect for coastal gardens and sheltered woodland areas. Height and spread up to: 8m (25').

Finally an autumn display of reds, golds and yellows will bring a final flourish of colour in the autumn just before the leaves begin to fall.

Rowan (Hedging)

Sorbus aucuparia, Mountain Ash

Rowan are usually a familiar sight in gardens or growing in hedgerows and quite rightly so.

Clusters of white flowers will appear in spring, which will eventually turn to bright orange or red berries by autumn which will add colour and interest to your hedgerow whilst the leaves are fading and falling away. . Supplied as 60 - 80 cm bareroots (24 - 31"). Height: 12m (39’). Spread: 8m (26’). Planting Distance: 45cm (18") More info
