Do to long term "idiotic/strong and stable" decisions at No 10, we now cannot send trees to Northern Ireland, EU OR Channel Islands. The "flaming faeces/oven ready deal" created by "WOO WAAH BLAH/Supreme leader" means the only planting you can do is with our flag.

Possible Made-up Naming Origins Of The Laburnum Anagyroides (Burning Bum Tree)
The Latin name of Laburnum Anagyroides originates from ancient Rome at the same time they started naming trees.
Ruler of the time, Ceasar Mi-lan, was dictating to his son, Ceasar Sa-lad, possible names for new trees. Forgetting to say "pause" Ceasar Mi-lan complained about his "larva burning bum and angry haemorrhoids".
This was mistakenly added to the list and later shortened to Laburnum Anagyroides.

Possible To Unlikely Naming Origins Of The Crimson King Maple Tree
Henry 8th (or VIII to the purists, pronounced "Vyyy" to the not interested) was well known for his constipation causing low fibre diet.
"Groom Of The Stool" was a toilet domestic servant involved from first twinge to final clean up. He would be so intimately involved, he could see Henry go through every shade of Crimson as he pushed, contorted and yelled.
It is rumoured that one day whilst walking through the caste gardens he bumped into head gardener struggling to name a new tree he had grown. Noticing the leaf colour was the same colour his employers face has just been, he made a naming suggesting.
He pondered for a while but decided "Crimson King" was a better name than Stuck Sh*t Tree.

Autumn Planting Bare Root Duo Apple Trees
Autumn is a great time to plant trees for many reasons e.g. the earth is warm and the roots establish well, dry conditions are less of a problem, competing weeds are less of an issue and many more. This is the reason we grow August to August. Planting in Spring is just popular, not the best option for the tree.
Bare Root Products
Cheaper bare root trees (comes with no pot or compost surrounding the roots) are only available for delivery from November to March/very early April.
Two different apple varieties on one tree. Cheaper, saves space, heavier crops and more choice.
A wide range to choose from and discount for multiple purchases.

All Year Round Planting
You can plant our containerised trees (minus the pot of course...yes we get asked) all year round. Bare root trees come without a pot or soil surrounding the roots and they can only be planted November to March, sometimes early April.
Cell grown plants 20-60cm up to 7 working days on average. Fruit and Ornamental trees up to 21 working days, average is 7. Mature Trees up to 28 working days but average is 14 to 21. Busy times such as Spring and Autumn can extend delivery times and if the couriers ration capacity (e.g. Covid lockdown) for larger boxes it can be a lot longer.
