  • Shrubs, Trees and Hedges Aftercare

    So you've made the decision to have some new shrubs or hedging planted, you've committed to the expense, waited patiently for your new plants to arrive. In the first two seasons its very important to remember to look after your new purchase to ensure its success. Whilst new hedges might not need trimming for a season or two they do need some after care to be put in place in order to ensure they become established successfully. The most essential requirement is watering and during dry spells you must not forget to water. Don't rely on the rain as often rainfall isn't heavy enough to water newly installed tree, shrubs or hedges. Also be very ware of rain shadow; for example the area beneath a wall that always stays dry despite the rain. The roots of your new plants are by no means as extensive or deeply established as those of your existing and mature shrubs; this is way they need a little extra help. Some species more than others. See the quick list below to help you get the best out of your new tree, shrub or hedge: Ensure plants are well-watered during dry spells for the next two years (don't rely on rainfall!) Top-dress annually with a general-purpose fertiliser, such as Growmore. Keep the area beneath the new plants weed free as otherwise you'll be watering the weeds and not your new purchase!

Please note pallets and plants combined will not exceed 2.2m in height or 1.250kg in weight. Delivery point needs 3m access or kerbside and pallets will be unloaded via a taillight and therefore cannot be off loaded onto soft ground. ​ Delivery Vehicle​s ​ Most deliveries are made with 18 tonne vehicles with a tail-lift and a manual pump trolley. We do not use any cranes or hi-abs for our deliveries. We advise that the vehicles are slightly larger than a standard dustbin lorry, therefore there needs to be an adequate amount of space for the vehicle, with no obstructions or restrictions. ​ Offloading your products ​ All deliveries are on wooden pallets or in wooden crates (pallets with sides) and are manually wheeled onto the delivery surface. We can only guarantee a kerbside delivery. The delivery surface needs to be smooth (such as concrete or tarmac) and flat or level with no incline. Please note that it is completely down to the driver’s discretion whether or not he deems the delivery location safe. ​ Possible Restrictions ​ The ground must be solid and flat. We cannot deliver onto loose gravel, grass or uneven surfaces. Hanging obstructions such as trees and cables, or parked vehicles may prevent the vehicle from accessing the delivery location. Height restrictions and bridges may pose an issue for delivery vehicles. ​ If you have any concerns regards anything detailed above then please do not hesitate to let us know.
