Tilia Varieties in Standard Sizes
Limes, or Lindens, (Tilia species) are vigorous, tough, medium to large sized trees that are happy being pollarded, and being cut back hard in general, which makes them perfect for planting beside the road in the city, where space is limited. They also make outstanding avenue trees and few large specimens look better in a parkland or large garden setting. Lime trees will grow on any averagely fertile soil.
They are hardy, suitable for exposed locations and immune to air pollution. Our varieties will reach between 10-30 metres, unless they are pleached or pollarded, for which we have a ready-to-pleach option.

Standard trees are measured by their girth 1 metre above the ground, and young saplings are measured by height. Therefore, a 6/8cm Standard Lime tree is much bigger than an 60/80cm sapling Lime tree. If a tree is available in both sizes, it will be noted in the product descriptions.
