Sorbus (Pot Grown Trees)

This genus of about 100 species which includes the Mountain Ash (Rowan) and Whitebeam is one of the most diverse and rewarding of tree groups for the garden. The trees are deciduous and are grown for their creamy white blossom, colourful berries, leaf shape and stunning autumn leaf colours. Sorbus berries (particularly aucuparia) can be used to make delicious jellies (similar to crab apple jelly) and are also an excellent source of food for birds. A collection of Sorbus can attract a wide variety of birds over several months as they will take the red berries first, leaving the other colours until later. The trees are generally small to medium in size and are hardy and easy to grow on most soils. They will tolerate windy coastal conditions and urban pollution. Sorbus trees are approximately 1.2m-1.5m (4-5ft) high on despatch. Pot grown trees are available from April to late August.

 

Don't forget to include tree stakes and ties on your order. All young trees require staking and for better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
