  • Plants are available bare root or root balled during the bare root season, November to March or potted all year round.
  • Root balling the plant ensure the plant is delivered with the whole root system intact ready for planting into the ground.
  • The root balled plant is placed in a biodegradable hessian net and tied up.
  • The plant is then transported to the end user and customer.
  • Our Root-balled Scot Pine trees are approximately 80 to 90cms in width and approximately 4ft tall.
  • We recommend planting the large Root Balled trees into a trench and backfilling with the soil. The trench will need to be about 12/18 inches deep to accommodate the root ball.
