At Exmoor Trees we are dedicated to growing hardy cell grown native and broadleaf trees, hedging and shrubs, at one of the highest tree nursery in England. In the heart of the Exmoor Forest in Somerset, 300+m above sea level, our cell grown plants are much stronger, hardier than tree whips and bare root plants, which are grown at lower altitude.
When your trees arrive they should be handled with care, kept upright and ideally kept by a north facing wall away from strong sunlight and out of the wind. And, make sure you protected plants from mice and other animals who may like to eat them.
Ensure your trees are kept moist, if weather if dry or windy, water using a normal rose on a watering can or hose. The best way to judge how damp plants should be kept is to see how wet they are when they arrive and use this as a reference.
It is best to plant your trees within a week or two weeks of arrival.
