Small Garden Trees for Sale

Trees for Smaller Gardens in Standard Sizes

Most standard trees are only delivered bareroot, during the winter planting season (Nov-March).

Small garden trees are essential in most planting schemes, as they give your garden height and structure without taking too much space and light. Many in our range put on some of the best displays of flower and foliage in spring and will light up the smallest space with wonderful autumn colouring. These trees are either small overall, or tall and narrow.

Browse the other garden trees in our range.

The planting and delivery season for bareroot trees is November - March. 

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

All our trees are covered by our no-quibble 1 Year Replacement Guarantee, which means you can order with complete confidence. Best advice & friendly support throughout. Please note that there is always a delivery charge for standard sized trees.
