Description
Often seen planted in long stands as avenue trees, the Small Leaved Lime is also an ideal specimen for hedges and screening too. Small white flowers appear in summer white which stand out well against the dark green leaves, later the winged seeds develop in clusters as the leaves slowly turn yellow. Easy to grow and maintain, Tilia cordata is a good choice for any boundary hedge. Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting Distance: 30cm (12"). (4 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

How to Grow
Plant Small-Leaved Lime in moist soil that is also well drained. When initially planting, ensure plenty of compost or organic matter is incorporated into the planting hole to give the plant the best possible start.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. Set these at the same level as they were in the nursery field – you should see a soil line at the base of the stem. Stake trees, taller shrubs and roses to prevent root disturbance.

More Info
Lime can be grown as a free-standing shrub or trained as a hedge. Free-standing shrubs will require minimal pruning; simply removed any dead, damaged or diseased growth each spring. Trim hedges in May and again in August. After pruning, mulch plants with 5cm (2") of well-rotted compost or manure around the base of the plants.
