The Crimean Lime tree, Tilia x euchlora is a relatively small, bushy but narrow Linden variety with lush, glossy green leaves. It makes a great screening tree and is suitable for most gardens.
Crimean Lime trees can reach a height of about 15-20 metres.
You can also buy "flat-headed" Tilia x euchlora from us if you plan to pleach your trees.

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 Crimean Lime trees:
Unlike other lime varieties, Tilia x euchlora does not attract many aphids, so you won't end up with all that sticky honeydew underneath the tree. It is also a fair bit smaller than its cousins, suitable for a medium sized garden and it produces few seeds. It has brilliant green leaves and drooping lower branches that tend to give the tree a cylindrical canopy down to ground level. This habit makes it an ideal tree for pleaching along wires - buy our ready to pleach lime trees for a headstart on this. The autumn colour is a pale, clean yellow.
Clusters of small, sweetly scented creamy-yellow flowers appear in mid-summer. The flowers appear to have a narcotic effect on insects and bees can often be seen sleeping off the effects on the ground nearby.
History & uses of Tilia euchlora
Also called the Caucasian Lime, this tree is a hybrid of the native Crimean Lime Tilia dasystyla and the Small Leaved Lime, Tilia cordata which is native here in Britain. It was identified in the latter half of the 1800's and propagated by Booth's Nursery, Hamburg.

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.
