These tree guards arrive flat-packed. They are in fact tubular and return to the correct shape when their strapping is cut. Our Economy tree guards are supplied with releasable cable ties (one for the 60 cm guard and two for the 120cm guard). They require a stake and are generally used when planting whips and lightly feathered bareroot stock. They are not suitable for use with standards or fruit trees where you will find our Heavy Duty Tree guards serve you better.
Please note that these tree guards are most effective when the guard is pushed at least 1" (2.5cms) into the soil. A little more is better. This helps prevents voles and mice from chewing the bark at ground level. Charming though they are, they can be a complete menace with young hedge plants and trees.

Delivery: The basic delivery charge for orders of bareroot plants is £6.50 + vat, which increases to £12.55 + vat if you add any pot-grown plants, standard trees or fruit trees to the order.
Because couriers sometimes experience delays, we schedule delivery by week, not by day. Therefore, please plan your planting day for the weekend at the end of the delivery week or for the week following delivery, at the earliest.
We will email you the day before your plants are due to arrive.
*Surcharges to the Highlands and Islands still apply.
Payment: We do not charge your card until we begin to prepare your order for packing.
Guarantee: If any plants die within a year, we will replace them. We only ask that you follow our planting & growing instructions and sent us clear photographs of the dead plants in situ, so we can help to make sure that the replacement plants succeed. You only pay for the delivery of the replacements.
Please note that our guarantee is void if there is a hosepipe ban in your area: your newly planted hedging must be watered in dry weather while it is establishing. The best way to water is very thoroughly every few days: at least once a week if there is no heavy rain.
Our nursery has been supplying container grown and bareroot hedging plants to gardeners, farmers and town planners since 1949. Our website started in 2003, so we do understand the concerns that you may have about buying hedging plants online. If any of your plants are damaged when they arrive or if you are otherwise not satisfied with your order after you inspect it, please repackage it and contact us. We will give you a refund or send replacements and send a courier to come and collect the unwanted plants.
