For some plants that are too heavy or too tall to be packed in cardboard boxes we use pallet deliveries. In these circumstances, we require a minimum order value of £200 for free delivery, or you can make a contribution towards the delivery cost. Look out for the information on product pages which explains this further where applicable and if your order is for less than £200 please call or email us to agree a delivery contribution. This requirement only applies to those plants where it is clearly indicated on the product page.
For delivery information for other products please see here.
The term pleaching is used within the industry of art, so why not introduce some artistry to your green space with our pleached fresh Hornbeam trees, which are a cheaper alternative to our Mature Pleached range. Fresh pleached trees are made with a bamboo-frame shortly before delivery. These trees are made for each order by which the stem height and size of the bamboo frame can be adjusted as required. The trees are generally cheaper as the mature pleached trees. On average, a fresh pleached tree has to grow about four years before it has the adult appearance of a mature pleached tree.
Hornbeam's winter appearance is similar to Beech with copper-coloured leaves, but not quite as vibrant. Hornbeam's leaves consist of a brown-grey compared to the autumnal orange-brown tones of Fagus sylvatica leaves.
Fresh pleached trees are younger trees with less growth development on the cane head structure than fully mature versions. Being less mature, they are however more cost effective options but will grow into beautiful mature specimens with full, thick screens.
The images shown are of fresh pleached trees with summer and winter foliage and this is how they will look upon arrival. The last image which displays more foliage is how the trees will look after the foliage has grown over time, creating a mature pleaced look.
