Couldn’t recommend and rate Cullen Nurseries more highly! They supplied excellent specimen shrubs and looked after all planting at a very competitive rate, not to mention a very speedy turn around. A super family run Irish business! Thanks Caitriona & Rob. M

So happy to have chosen Cullen Nurseries to supply, plant and fertilize our new Red Robin hedge. Great customer service from Caitriona and really pleased with the very professional job Rob & his colleague did planting them. Pics don't do them justice - this was the day they were planted - 61 x 2l Red Robins - really healthy looking plants. Delighted and looking forward to seeing them grow over the years. Thank you!

Benefits of Trees to Biodiversity & Ecosystems

Planting a tree of any type but especially Lime Trees in the garden is a great way to encourage biodiversity and preserve ecosystems. A tree in the garden provides shelter, security and habitats for nesting birds, food for birds and insects and also acts as a network and mechanism for small animals to move around the garden and populate. The flowers of the Lime trees provide a food source for honey bees.

How & When to Plant Your Lime Trees

  • Lime trees are best planted as bare root trees in the Winter months, usually from November through to March.
  • We grow these trees here in our native nursery.
  • We have Limes available in 2 different sizes, as 5-6ft trees or as 8ft trees.
  • If planting through a garden hedge, we recommend planting about 8 metres apart.
  • When planting any tree we recommend securing it with a stake and super soft tree tie to prevent them from blowing over or being damaged in windy Winter months.

Tips & Tricks for looking after your Lime Trees

  • Lime trees grow well in full sun or partial shade.
  • They are ideal plants for most soil types and pH’s but do not like very wet ground.
  • It is important to keep plants watered in the first year of growth if planted in late March or April.
  • Lime trees are moderately fast growing and lower branches of fresh growth, nearer the base of the tree can be pruned off in the Summer months.
  • Trimming is usually done in late Spring or Summer when new growth appears on the tree.
  • Trimming these fresh branches, lower down near the base of the tree helps maintain the crown shape on the tree.
  • When planting trees, make sure the area is clear of weeds to avoid competition for the plants.
  • Dig a hole deep enough to cover the roots and collar of the tree.
  • Remove the plant from the bag and place it in the hole.
  • Be careful not to damage the delicate root system.
  • Break up the removed soil well to encourage aeration of the soil.
  • Shovel back in this soil and walk in the plant well.
  • Secure the tree from windy weather by placing down a stake beside the tree and securing the tree to the stake with a super soft tree tie.

Aftercare for the Lime Trees – Tilia cordata.

If planted in dry weather, trees should be watered regularly to ensure growth. Annual pruning and trimming of new branches nearer the base of the tree helps maintain the crown shape of the Lime Tree.
