We offer 2 main types, fresh pleached trees that are trained onto the bamboo trellis immediately before despatch using only the straightest, best quality young trees. Fresh pleached trees offer a significant cost saving compared to more mature stock and are generally lighter and easier to handle, they will develop into a full head of branches with a mature appearance within a season or two.
Mature pleached trees have been trained onto their framework some years previously and kept expertly pruned in the nursery to develop a fuller and denser head of beautiful branches for immediate effect from the moment they are planted. These are the plants used for top end show gardens such us those at the Chelsea or Hampton Court shows.
Pleached Trees are available as pot grown specimens for delivery all year round, or as root ball stock which is available for delivery during the Winter season of dormancy from late October until April.
Because of the size of our pleached trees (they are too tall for any courier delivery service!) all our Pleached Trees are delivered by our own transport, direct to you straight from our nursery. We usually use our own Land Rover and trailer and will always call you to arrange a mutually convenient day first. Delivery is still free for these beautiful trees but as they require a more bespoke approach to delivery and we do need a minimum order of £1500 (ex VAT) to cover our costs. (We can sometimes deliver smaller orders with a contribution towards delivery to more local addresses (South East), please do call our sales team on 01580 765600 or take a look at our delivery page)
Pleached trees are available for delivery to addresses in mainland England and Wales.
