These squares of jute mulching fabric, made from 1000g per square metre material are strongly recommended for use with standard trees (the largest delivery size of tree). They suppress weeds and retain moisture - weeds and dry soil being the 2 main killers of newly planted shrubs and trees. The mats are slitted to fit around the trunk of a newly planted tree and rot down naturally after about 2 years, improving the soil as they go.
You can buy plastic pegs to pin them down - you can also make your own or use metal camping pegs. Or just push the corners of the mat into the soil with a spade, but using stones to hold the mulch down is not ideal as they will create dry patches in the soil underneath them.
You can also buy lengths of polypropylene mulch fabric for hedges.

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.
