The Highlights

    • Known as 'Snow Queen', the Himalayan Birch Tree will bring winter wonder to your garden with its snowy white, exfoliating bark
    • Medium-sized, ovate mid-green foliage with yellow/brown catkins in spring
    • Colour all year round: in autumn the foliage turns to a striking golden yellow
    • Slender form, suited to smaller gardens
    • Grows up to 1.8 x18m in most soils and conditions
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single-use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better-shaped tree. This can stop the tree from becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE
