  • Stunning mature specimens

    Looking for something special?


    Specimen trees We have some stunning new specimens in stock to view now.

    Mid-winter is a great time to appreciate form, structure and evergreens in the garden. Topiary can be used to great effect in both formal and informal gardens. Evergreen yew can be clipped to many shapes - balls, cones, half standards and we have a great selection which can be used as single specimens or in groups.  For a less formal look, we have mature 'multi-stem' Cryptomeria japonica and Holly - Ilex Nellie Stevens.

    Also valuable in the winter garden are trees with interesting bark including Himalayan birch and winter flowering shrubs such as Hamamelis, Mahonia and Daphne.


    Also new in stock are multi-stem 2.5m+ evergreen oak and Camellia - suitable for contemporary urban gardens and traditional gardens alike. Use as a stunning centre piece or a symmetrical pair.


    Other new arrivals include half-standard pleached evergreen Elaeagnus and deciduous Pyrus Chanticleer (ornamental pear).

    Come and visit to view!

    HawthornsNative hedges are valuable for wildlife as they provide nesting sites, shelter and habitat, and seeds and berries for birds and small mammals. For Rural Hedge Mixtures in quantities up to 150 plants (for approx. 30m) we offer a popular mixture of 2-3 year bare root plants 60-80cm in height pre-packed in bundles of 25 containing hawthorn, field maple, hazel, spindle and blackthorn.  We also supply larger quantities from a selection of your choice or our recommendations.

    a line of yewWe supply bushy evergreens as Rootballs - Yew and Thuja plicata (Western Red Cedar) - both make great evergreen screens, they can be trimmed to great effect in formal gardens as partitions, or a backdrop to herbaceous borders. Yew does require good drainage so Thuja plicata is a good alternative in heavier moister soils.
