Traditional Norway Spruce, non-neddle-drop Nordman, and non-needle-drop Frasier fir offer something to suit all tastes.  If you need a new stand to support your tree we have some sturdy ones that hold the tree and a little water reservoir to help keep the tree fresh.  Trees can be netted for your convenience and we can even arrange local delivery if required. Call in and select your tree and if you are not ready to take it home yet then we can look after it until nearer to christmas.  We also have some potted trees, mostly Norway Spruce, which if looked after properly ove the festive period could be planted out in the garden.

Check out our Full Rose Availability to find the perfect variety for your beloved this Valentines Day.

One of our beautiful rose bushes will bring colour to the garden for many years to come, what could be better than the gift that grows!
