  • Happy in acidic or neutral to alkaline soils
  • Spacing distance varies on use
  • If planting in lawns, then space 5 to 7m apart
  • When planting, dig a planting hole twice the width of the tree's root ball
  • Ensure each plant is straight & soil is compacted in around it's root ball
  • Level off the soil around the plants

After Care

  • Water before & after planting
  • If dry weather persists, water every 2 days in the first year
  • Weeding is also essential - especially bind weed which can quickly smoother a young tree
  • Keep grass growth away from the base of trees to ensure a faster growth rate
  • Avoid strimming around the base of trees

Bought 2 of these. Great quality and well packaged although one of the tops was broken about a foot from the top, no one's fault, these things happen in transit. Will definitely buy more if they come back in stock.
Super fast delivery and trees are very healthy time to plant now. Was worried about ordering plants online but noneed to will definitely use this service again
Betula Jacquemontii. I placed my order and 2 days later the tree arrived. It was also bigger than expected which was a pleasent surprise. Cheap enough and only 4.95 to get it delivered.
Great service provided, I will use again.
