Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Betula pendula is a familiar sight in the UK. Valued as a pioneer species, it is one of the first to colonise disrupted or polluted sites, improving soil structure and fertility with its deep root system. Silver Birch is instantly recognisable for the silvery-white, peeling bark covering its slender, upright stems. With maturity, the trunk will become blackened and rugged at the base. An elegant canopy of small green leaves and yellow spring catkins cover the fine, twiggy stems to create useful dappled shade. With its distinctive pendulous habit, this graceful British native makes an attractive specimen tree and a valuable addition to wildlife and woodland areas. Height: 12m (39’). Spread: 8m (26’).

This Betula pendula clump is produced by coppicing, to create a multi-stemmed plant that will make a real feature.

Feed and water Betula until fully established. Once established, Birch trees require no maintenance. If pruning is necessary to remove diseased or misplaced stems then this should be carried out in winter when the plant is dormant, as Birch has a tendency to bleed sap if pruned during the growing season.
Grow Birch on any moist, fertile, well drained soil. Birch thrive in full sun or lightly dappled shade and are generally tolerant of windy positions.
