Commonly known as Frosted Thorn, boasts attractive, dark-green, broadly oval foliage which turns marvelous shades of yellow, orange and copper in the autumn. A fine display of single white flowers appear amongst the spiny branches in May, providing nectar for insects. This is followed by impressive red fruits in the autumn, which hang well into the winter.

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.
