    From £70.00

    Sorbus Autumn Spire 'Flanrock' (Mountain Ash) is a small upright tree with vibrant green leaves that mature to purple, red and yellow in the autumn months. The vivid autumnal leaves contrast beautifully with the bright yellow berries that this mountain ash sprouts. Pretty white flowers also develop in spring. In 10 years of growth, 'Autumn Spire' Mountain Ash trees have a height of 4 metres and a spread of 1 metre. They are suited to all soil types and require a position in full sun.

     

    This columnar Mountain Ash tree is perfect for smaller spaces and gardens due to its upright growth habit. It is known for its Autumn apeal; an array of colourful features from the yellow berries with reddish centres that contrast nicely with the striking, colourful autumn leaves. Local birds feast on the fruits of this Sorbus 'Autumn Spire'.

    Sorbus 'Autumn Spire' will grow in many difficult positions including polluted and exposed areas. It is advised toavoid wet or waterlogged sites.

    Planting Advice

    Our single stem, pot grown Mountain Ash trees can be planted all year-round. To aid the trees growth more effectively, sprinkle root grow when planting. Here are some tips for planting your Sorbus tree:

    1. Dig a square hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide 
    2. Mix 50% of the original soil with 50% compost
    3. Place the roots of the tree into the hole, fill it with your soil mix and firm around gently (avoid banking the collar of the tree)

    Aftercare Advice

    Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons.

    • If planting in spring or summer, water well for the first few months and increase watering if there are periods of hot or dry weather.
    • If planting in autumn, you may only need to water a little.  

    If your area is prone to rabbits, use a rabbit guard.

    Pruning Advice

    It is important that Sorbus 'Autumn Spire' has a strong framework to support its upright growth habit.

    • Raise the crown to support the framework
    • Prune the lower branches and any crossing, damaged or diseased branches within in the crown

    Pruning to raise the crown should be carried out in summer.

    Hard pruning can be carried out in dormant season (autumn/winter).
