Everyone loves trees, so if you are thinking of planting one, why not do it for the Queens Jubilee.

Here at Groves Nurseries and Garden Centre we have an absolutely fantastic selection of ornamental and fruit trees, including rare and unusual varieties.

How about something topical?

Betula ‘Snow Queen’ - a beautiful white stemmed Himalayan Birch.

Pictured here is Malus ‘Royal Beauty’ – a small weeping tree with copper red young leaves, deep pink flowers and small dark red fruit.

Or on a similar theme:

Prunus kanzan ‘Royal Burgundy’ – an upright tree with rich burgundy leaves and contrasting pink blossom, with the added bonus of the leaves turning scarlet red in Autumn.

Sorbus ‘Apricot Queen’ - a small ornamental Rowan tree with bright orange berries, will tolerate harsh conditions.

Maybe you live in Somerset, well there is a Maple called Acer rubrum ‘Somerset’ which has fantastic deep red Autumn colouring.

If you want to go the whole hog, why not plant a small orchard, this need not just be Apples. We have Cherries, Plums, Pears or how about a group of Cider Apples, alternatively create your own Nuttery using our range of Cobnuts, Hazel nuts, Walnuts and Chestnuts.

Ailanthus altissima - tree of heaven

So, as you can see the list is endless. There are trees for small gardens, trees for exposed areas, wet soils and so on, in fact you name it we will probably have a tree to fit your requirements. We even have trees to celebrate a marriage – Malus ‘Wedding Bouquet’.

Once planted your garden will feel like a little piece of Heaven, come to think of it we have that as well a tree called Ailanthus altissima commonly called ‘The Tree of Heaven’!

Go on celebrate the Queens Jubilee and plant a tree.

If you would like any further help choosing a tree or in fact any question about gardening, please feel free to get in touch with me or anyone at Groves either by e-mail hardyplants@grovesnurseries.co.uk or by calling 01308 422654
