  • Special Offer on half standard topiary

    10% off all half standard topiary this summer*

    Whether you want to smarten up the front door with two beautiful plants either side, create a formal herb garden or just enjoy some beautiful trained trees, we have some great quality half standard trees in the nursery.

    Topiary plants Half standard Topiary

    There are many evergreen options including Prunus lusitanica (Portugal laurel) which clips beautifully and is shade tolerant. Laurus nobilis (bay) which prefers a sunny well drained site - the fragrant leaves can be dried and used in cooking!

    Holly is a useful specimen to keep in containers as it is slow growing -  Ilex argentea marginata - variegated holly really brightens up a front garden particularly in winter; Ilex Nellie Stevens is shade tolerant and has lots of red berries! Photinia Red Robin makes a great specimen in a sunny site with bright red new foliage in spring.

    For something more unusual the small variety of Scots pine -  Pinus sylvestris Nana Watereri makes a stunning half standard and will cope with windy sites.

    Liquidambar Gumball, Arbutus unedo (strawberry tree) and Elaeagnus ebbingei (silverberry) are other unusual half standards in the nursery - come and see...

  • Cornus Venus

    Fabulous Specimen Tree Cornus Venus in flower

    Cornus is a wide genus of a variety of trees and shrubs. The flowering dogwoods are reknowned for their large bracts around small pin like flowers, giving the appearance of a mass of large petalled flowers.

    Venus is a particularly lovely variety the green white bracts getting larger through May and June to culminate with a dusting of pink on bright white 'flowers'.

    They grow best in moist but well drained humus rich fertile soil (which can be chalk, loam, sand or clay) and in a sunny or partially shady site.

    They could take centre stage in a small or large garden. Mature trees also have red fruits, and they can also show good autumn colour.

    Ultimate size can be 4-8m high and 2.5 - 4m wide.
