Young's Weeping Birch (Betula pendula 'Youngii') 9L Pot

Code: TR0136
Young's Weeping Birch (Betula pendula 'Youngii') 9L Pot
Betula pendula 'Youngii' (Young's Weeping Birch) - 9L Pot

This classic weeping birch is a delicate tree, tall and slender, with branches which cause a large spread, creating an umbrella of leaves. Separate male and female catkins open in spring, adding another dimension to this beautiful weeping birch, which has peeling white bark, reminiscent of the closely-related silver birch. This will thrive in almost any soil, even wet and poorly-drained soils, thanks to the hardy nature of this tree.

Caring and Maintenance

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 8m

Suited to almost all, well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in an exposed or sheltered location in full sun.
Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Autumn is the best season for planting fruiting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.

This is an example of our polypot - note the fruit/ornamental trees we stock will vary in appearance according to species and season.
