  Beech hedging - a plant for all seasons
  Beech is our best-selling plant, and for very good reason. It's enjoying something of a revival - not least because of its versatility and year-round interest.

Video: Heeling in bareroot plants in freezing weather
  Heeling in plants in freezing weather
  When the ground is frozen, or likely to be frozen, you shouldn't try to plant your bareroot trees.

'Heeling in' keeps the roots protected from the worst of the frosty weather, and keeps your tree dormant until the weather warms up.

Please note that we can't lift trees from frozen ground either, which may affect our deliveries. Please take a moment to read our cold weather blog.

Watch our video on how to 'heel in'
