- 25-30 cm girth, 200 cm trunk, 130-150 litres pot
A fast growing standard tree which is great for hedges, privacy screens and windbreaks.
They require very little maintenance, even in poor soil and are grown successfully in locations all over the UK. The tree’s rapid growth will mean that surrounding areas can be quickly overshadowed and so it will probably need to be pruned back each year.
All of our trees allow you to style your garden in a range of different ways, not just because of their varied colours, but also because of the way you choose to trim and maintain them. Prune them regularly to achieve a neat, clean form, or let them bush-out a little to create a more natural appearance. Whether you’re using a hedge to give your garden some privacy, or as protection from the weather, road and noise pollution, you’ll want to choose a plant that complements the rest of your garden’s visual appearance. Our trees have evergreen foliage – giving you some pleasant greenery to look at all-year-round.
