Deliveries of 'Large Shrubs'

Please note: The cost for deliveries of shrubs exceeding 2m in height will be by 'special arrangement only', due to the restrictions applied by the courier network. Please feel free to call us to discuss your requirements. We will be happy to 'quote' and propose the most efficient means of delivering your order. Any delivery charges already quoted against 'large shrubs' on our website are for guidance only and are dependent on the specific height of individual specimens.

We will endeavour to fulfill all orders placed, however we reserve the right to withdraw any item from 'offer of sale', or cancel any order placed due to stock availability. 

Planting new trees and shrubs is not a difficult job, but one to get right, if you want your new plants to have the best start in life. The most important considerations are root establishment and health, weather, soil conditions and aftercare. To support early root establishment, we recommend using Rootmaster to assist root stimulation and healthy growth. 

This advice is suitable for all trees and shrubs, whether containerised, bare-root or rootballed:

Planting is best done between October and April. Container-grown plants can be planted any time of year, but are easier to care for if planted in Autumn or Winter, as they need less watering than ones planted in Spring or Summer. Bare-root and rootballed trees and shrubs are only available in Autumn and Winter. They should be planted immediately, but if this is not possible, then they can be heeled in (temporary planting in soil or compost to prevent the roots drying out) until planting is possible.

Problems: Planting too deep is a common cause of tree death. Aim to plant at the same depth that the tree was growing in the nursery. Poor establishment and brown leaves are also sometimes encountered after planting.
