Give a Gift Gardeners will Love! – Winter Promotions on Bay Trees and Birches

With twelve days on the clock, it’s time to sit down and have a serious think about what Christmas gifts you’ll be picking up this year (if you haven’t already!).

Fortunately, we’re here to help make the decision a little bit easier, with a couple of promotions running on two of our most popular winter specimens, the Bay Laurel and Himalayan Birch, both of which are offered with a 20% discount right up until December 23rd.

The Bay Laurel, or Laurus nobilis, is a fantastic, columnar, evergreen tree, or large shrub. With deep-green, glossy and aromatic leaves it’s a popular gift for topiary lovers seeking something simple to shape and prune.

It’s compact enough to make for a manageable, ornamental gift, and looks great when potted alongside doors, gardens, parterres and even less roomy balconies. Whether placed in sun or partial shade, you’ll find the Bay Laurel thrives, once provided with well-drained soil.

It’s available now in heights ranging from 40-130cm, and head sizes of 35-60cm. Just use the code Bay13 at checkout.

Our second offer is the Himalayan Birch, or Betula utilis jacquemontii. The dark green, heart-shaped leaves are larger than our native Silver Birch, and fade to a pleasant yellow in autumn. Though you’ll get to enjoy yellow-brown catkins in the spring, the tree’s creamy-white, peeling bark provides unique interest in winter gardens, creating a welcome splash of intense colour in the sparser months.

It’s fully hardy, and will grow quickly on most soils and sites, excluding very thin soils over chalk or coastal exposures. There’s plenty of choice available, trees are available from 175-500cm, or multi-stemmed variants from 250-400cm. Just check out the appropriate promotions page, and remember to use the code Birch13 at checkout.

If you’ve got any questions or queries about these promotions, or would even like to ask for advice on finding a specific gift or tree, don’t hesitate to contact us, or just come down to the nursery in person! There’s always someone available to take your calls or lend a hand.
