  • Attractive small screening tree

    Ligustrum excelsa superbum - Variegated Chinese Privet

    A versatile  small tree suitable for urban and rural sites alike.  It is evergreen in a sheltered location and mild winter, but sheds leaves in winter in more exposed sites or during hard winters. It tolerates most soil types and thrives in full sun.

  • Autumn just gets better

    Two trees that keep their leaves well into November (and sometimes December!) are Crataegus lavellei and Pyrus Chanticleer.

    Crataegus lavalleiToday the sun shone (briefly) on Crataegus lavellei showing off the glossy orange berries and deep green leaves.  This little known hawthorn is hardy, tolerates most soils and grows to around 7m. It makes it a perfect tree for providing privacy at this time of year.

    Pyrus Chanticleer fthPyrus Chanticleer - an ornamental pear - also keeps its leaves well into autumn and then shows autumn tints of yellow to orange/red. This tree tolerates heavy soils and windy sites - even coastal sites. In spring it is covered with creamy white flowers - a real stunner!  In stock now are trees 4m high which make quite an impact.
