How to prune your fruit tree maidens after planting

Ashridge Nurseries donates 2,500 plants to local schools

Plant a tree, make air for free

We've donated over 2,500 trees and hedges to schools in the South West, for children to plant in commemoration of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. Pupils in the project will wear their 'Plant a tree, make air for free' sticker!

Speaking of the Queen's Jubilee...

The Queen Elizabeth rose

The Queen Elizabeth rose demands attention! Vigorous with masses of pure pink, scented flowers on long stems that are perfect for cutting. Better still, Queen Elizabeth is one of the easiest roses to grow.
