Bare Root Native Hedging
During the bare root planting season (traditionally November to March) we hold a comprehensive range of native hedging plants including hawthorn, blackthorn, field maple, hazel, dogwood, dog rose, spindle, hornbeam, green and copper beech, viburnum opulus and lantana amongst others ranging in sizes from 40/60 cm to 100/125 cm.
Bare Root Native, Ornamental and Fruit Trees
Along with the staple, oak, beech, birch, hornbeam, lime, wild cherry, chestnut, rowen etc, we hold a range of ornamental trees including various birches, flowering cherries/crab apple/plum/pear, sorbus, gleditsia, davidii and willows to name but a few. The list is extensive, ever changing as is the range of sizes. As for bare root fruit trees we keep the most popular varieties of apple, pear, plum/gages, cherries, apricot, peach, quince and increasingly some Norfolk/heritage varieties, mostly 1 yr maidens or 2 yr bushes.
Evergreen and Semi Mature/Instant Hedging/Screening
For that instant screen/hedge we keep larger root balled plants including thuja plicata (the new leylandii), portuguese and cherry laurel, photinia “red robin” and yew (taxus) box (buxus), yew (taxus), laurel (prunus) and thuja are kept as smaller bare root plants.
Container Grown Trees, Shrubs and Hedging
During March/April we containerise a lot of bare root stock so most but not all of the above are available in pots for all year round planting.
Bamboo Plants and Poles
We currently stock about 45 varieties of bamboo plants (bashania, borinda, fargesia, hibanobambusa, indocalamus, phyllostachys, pseudosasa, sasa, sasaella, semiarundinaria, shibataea, thamnocalamus, yushania) in a range of pot sizes from 2 to 45 ltr. The bamboo poles are in 10 ft length and up to 6 inch diameter.

Mipex/weed suppressant planting membrane is stocked in 1, 2 and 3 mtr widths. Stakes and tree ties are stocked in various lengths and sizes to cover any eventuality.
