Handsome native tree with large pale to mid-green heart- shaped leaves. Yellow-white, sweetly scented flowers, which are very attractive to bees, appear in June and July. Woodpeckers are also attracted to the sweet sap in the bark. Not suitable for dry sites, but can thrive on poorly drained soil. Possibly the tallest deciduous tree in Britain which may reach 40m (130ft).

TREE 9m x 3.7m (30ft x 12ft) in 20 years, ultimate height 30m+ (100ft+).

Bare-Root Plants (Transplants)

Bare-root plants are sold without a pot/soil around the roots. This is a more cost effective and environmentally friendly way of growing plants. To ensure the best plant health we do not store our plants in cold storage, but they are left in our field or plant beds until they are ready for packing or collection.

Transplanted plants have been lifted from the ground and replanted. This encourages a better fibrous root system and makes the plant stronger and bushier.


Bare rooted plants are only available when the plants are dormant (typically from late November to March).

If a plant is currently out of stock because it is out of season (for example, bare rooted plants in summer) or we have sold out but we are expecting more to be available you can pre-order the plant. We only charge credit/debit cards when an order is despatched, not when an order is placed.
