An upright columnar shrub or small tree ideal for smaller borders or as a stand-alone specimen. The toothed foliage opens green but soon turns dark purple in a sunny position. Flat heads of musky-scented, pale pink flowers with large red anthers appear in late spring, followed by purple-black berries for wine making.

Packaging

We have developed an eco friendly polypot that is currently in use across our 9 litre range. This polypot has less than 20% of the plastic used by a regular pot, and is importantly recyclable. Polypots also prevent root spiraling, encouraging a healthier root system.

All trees arrive in an extra thick cardboard box with a clamp to hold their pot in place. This prevents them from moving around on their journey.

Nursery staff will wrap the roots of our bare root trees and use compost to keep them moist during transportation. This extra protection prevents them from drying out, allowing for a flying start. We also use the same specialised box that our potted trees have to keep them nice and secure as they make their way to your home.
