Delivery & Guarantee
Tamarisk Hedge Plants - Delivered by Mail Order from the Nursery with a 1 Year Guarantee
The Tamarisk tree, Tamarix tetrandra, is a great coastal hedging plant or large ornamental shrub. Tamarisk will reach 8 metres if it grows freely as a tree.
Tamarisk hedge plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March). All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).
Spacing a Tamarisk hedge: Plant Tamarisk hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.
General description of Tamarisk plants: Tamarisk, Tamarix tetrandra, is a large shrub or small tree. It produces masses of little pink flowers in May and June that are often likened to coral. It is a good hedge plant for seaside areas (we often put it in our mixed coastal hedging packs), but we think it is at its best when it is allowed to grow freely as a specimen shrub, when it can be pruned hard immediately after flowering to encourage lots of beautiful plumes of new growth the following year.
History & uses of Tamarix tetrandra: Tamarisk is a Mediterranean and Arabian plant that was brought to Britain in 1821. In 2002, it won the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
Delivery: The basic delivery charge for orders of bareroot plants is £9.49 + 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. You can choose the delivery week that suits you during checkout and we will email you the day before your plants are due to arrive.
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.
