Young's Weeping Birch | Betula Pendula 'Youngii'
Small weeping version of our native birch suitable for small gardens
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.

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.
