Key is to regularly water newly-planted trees, at least bimonthly for two months. It is also important to ensure you choose a location where your tree has enough space, which you can calculate from a variety's eventual height and spread.

Dig a hole twice the radius of the rootball. Before planting, drench the rootball. Place the pot in the hole, ensuring it sits no lower than an inch below ground.

Fill the hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, and add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. Do not compress the soil. Give your tree a good watering. Add mulch on top whether bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould and stones. Make sure mulch doesn't touch the stem.

Apply fertiliser and replace decomposed mulch come spring.

Your conifer will be sent directly from the grower, based in the fertile lands of Norfolk, to your doorstep. This approach means that you get a nursery fresh plant which was on the growing table one day and at your door the next. Our expert shrub nursery has spent decades perfecting the art of watering feeding and pruning shrubs and will do so until hours before it is packed. We see this as a real advantage over garden centres, where plants can be left unattended for weeks on end, or even other mail order companies that despatch from fulfillment sites.

This plant will be expertly packaged into a specially designed, extra thick cardboard box, which holds the plant in place, and sent through a delicate courier network to prevent any chance of damage in transit.

Conifers are easy to grow. Your tree’s growth and output will likely be fine providing you followed our planting and care instructions. Below we address some common queries:

  • Hardiness: Conifers can be found growing in far colder regions than the UK and therefore the UK’s mild winters will not affect your tree.
  • Position: Conifers make an excellent choice for shady areas of the garden, but do benefit from full sun.
  • Soil Types: Soil types are best ignored and remain an unwelcome confusion. Every plant will adapt to its conditions. Having said that, less than ideal conditions will reduce growth. Waterlogged soils will starve your tree of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis, cause its roots to rot and create the perfect environment for many diseases. Similarly, compressed soils can starve a tree of oxygen and water, so do not compress the soil when planting. Aeration can be improved further with mulching.
  • Planting In Pots: Conifers do well in pots and benefit from slightly acidic soil, so using a mix of ericaceous soil and garden soil is recommended. With upright varieties, select a square pot, as high winds will topple your tree.
