All trees are grown for a full growing season before despatch in 12 (litre) or 7 (litre) 'long pots' to encourage deep rooting for stability and fast establishment after planting. Our 7L Ornamental range includes the more unusual and slow growing varieties. Sizes and shapes vary but every care is taken to produce trees that are proportionate to the natural vigour and habit of the individual tree. Where appropriate they are summer pruned to encourage branching and flowering /fruiting. In the majority of varieties, minimum height is 1.5m, the exceptions will be certain shrubby and multi stemmed trees naturally of a bushy nature.
