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.
Copper Beech (Hedging)
Fagus sylvatica f. purpureaPerfect for an unusually coloured hedge or screen, Copper beech can be grown to almost any height required and will maintain a good density and tidy form, only needing clipping once or twice a year. Its growth forms a thick, interwoven hedge that is ideal for security as well as looking extremely decorative too, Fagus sylvatica tends to hold most of its leaves over winter, even though they have died off and sheds them in spring as the new growth appears, helping to keep privacy to a miximum. Supplied as 50 - 80 cm bareroots (20 - 31"). Height: 12m (39’). Spread: 8m (26’). Planting distance: 30cm (12"). More info
Crab Apple 'Royalty'
MalusA particularly attractive tree, Crab Apple 'Royalty' is unmistakeable for its dark mahogany foliage that turns to scarlet in Autumn. The deep pink springtime apple blossom is followed by dark red fruits that make a fabulous crab apple jelly. Any unpicked fruits will soften after a few frosts to create a sumptuous food source for wild birds. Crab apples are self fertile and if planted near orchard apple trees make excellent pollinators. Rootstock: M26. Height and spread: 3m (10').
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 1 year.
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.More info
