How Standard Trees are Measured:
All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
Standard trees are 2 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us. We cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
General description of Tilia Pallida trees:
Tilia europaea Pallida is a cultivar of the Common Lime tree with yellow lustre to the newer branches and tidier, pyramidal habit. It bears small, scented, creamy flowers in early summer which have a special leaf hanging down next to them that spins round like a struggling helicopter when the mature seeds fall, which carries them a bit farther from their parent tree.
Kaiser Linden's large, roundish leaves and young stems attract lots of aphids in the summer. The sugary dew drops that they produce can be a nuisance if a car is parked under them, but they also provide a feast for all sorts of birds and useful insects like ladybirds. Bees also benefit from the large supply of nectar to be found in this tree's flowers.
History & uses of Kaiser Linden
Known as Kaiserlinden or Kaiser Linden, which means the King's Lime, this tree is adored by street planners worldwide for its upright growth, immunity to air pollution and tolerance of brutal pruning, even by unskilled workers. There is a street in Berlin dedicated to this tree called Unter den Linden, which means "Under the Linden Trees".

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.
