Ornamental Trees – Container Specifications

We grow a variety of ornamental container trees in various sizes to suit the smaller and larger garden. All of the trees are grown for a full growing season before despatch to encourage deep rooting for stability and fast establishment after planting. Our container trees are measured in height from the top of the pots to the top of the trees, not measured by girth.
