Buying: trees and shrubs
Buying a new tree or shrub can be very exciting, but also confusing.Whether buying a bare-root, rootballed or containerised plant, it is important to consider factors such as size, root and canopy health, suitability for the garden and retailer guarantees.
Timing: Autumn to late winter for bare-root plants; year-round for containerised trees and shrubs
