Product Description

Silver Birch is a very popular, hardy deciduous tree growing to approximately 10 - 15mts.

It has a beautiful white trunk which contrasts with the bright green foliage on pendulous branching.

Birch is often used as fence line screens, along driveways, in group plantings or as specimens to highlight entrances etc.

Birch have a fairly fibrous root system which means they’re not likely to crack walls, damage slabs or crush pipes if planted too close.

It does mean, however, mulch is required for the summer months to help retain moisture.

They like full sun or part shade and well drained, fertile, moist soil.
Fertilise at the start of spring once the first of the foliage appears with an all purpose fertiliser for best results.
