Elaeagnus Ebbingeii is a beautiful evergreen shrub often used as a hedging plant but is a great species for pleaching too. Pleached Elaeagnus ebbingei is easy to grow in any normal garden soil including chalk, this is a good plant for windy and exposed sites and they grow well in full sun or partial shade.
Pleached Elaeagnus ebbingei trees are best planted with rootgrow to give them the best start, its also a good idea to add plenty of good quality garden compost or well-rotted farmyard manure at planting time (well mixed with the surrounding soil). They also benefit from a generous layer of bark chippings or a similar organic mulch to retain moisture and discourage weeds in the early years after planting.
Pleached Elaeagnus trees are always supplied as pot grown specimens, available for planting all year round.
Because of the size of our pleached Elaeagnus ebbingei 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 often deliver smaller orders in the south East of England with a contribution towards delivery, please do call our sales team on 01580 765600 or take a look at our delivery page)
Pleached Elaeagnus ebbingei trees are available for delivery to addresses in mainland England and Wales.
