Ornamental Tree Sizes:
Please note that unless otherwise stated all our ornamental trees are supplied bare-rooted which means they are sent to you at a mutually convenient time during the planting season which runs from November to March/April
All the trees in this category are measured as "standards". This is the girth of the tree (i.e. its waist measurement) at 1 metre above ground level, shown in centimetres.
So, a 6/8 sized standard tree has a trunk that is between 6 and 8 centimetres in circumference, one metre from the ground.
As a rough average, a 6/8 standard is over 2 metres tall, while an 8/10 standard is between 3 and 4 metres, but this will vary depending on the type of tree. Heights are measured when planted.
Fruit Tree Sizes:
Most of our fruit trees are sold in 3 sizes.
Apple & Pear trees are also sold as ready made cordons.
You can find information regarding the rootstocks we use for our fruit trees here.
Soft Fruit Sizes:
These plants aren't measured by height because they are such low bushes & some of them need to be chopped back before delivery anyway.
All of our roses were budded or grafted 2 years before you receive them. Both bareroot and pot grown roses are pruned down to about 30 cms high when we deliver them.
