A variety of mulches can be used in the early stages after planting in order to supress weeds and keep moisture in the ground by reducing evaporation. This will ensure that the tree does not have to compete with weeds for the available water and nutrients resulting in better and faster establishment of the plant.


Manufactured in the UK from 100% recycled materials: 30% SCP Material. The product is needle punched onto a degradable polythene backing, to allow both air and water to pass through the layers. Helps to suppress competing weed growth within the vicinity of the plants root development area, Allows water and air to percolate through the wool layer and helps to retain moisture in time of drought, the matting acts as an insulator and absorbs heat from the sun thus creating an assisted environment for the plant to establish itself, totally degradable lasting a minimum of two seasons. 


The mats measure 50cm x 50cm and are 450g weight each.

Delivery

Our bare root plants and cuttings are delivered between November and May (specific dates cannot be guaranteed) but we do encourage early planting for the best results.

Most orders are dispatched within 3-5 working days where stocks are available. If they are not available at the time of order you will be notified and an alternative delivery date discussed with you.We ship to mainland UK and the Isle of Wight (although surcharges may be incurred in some more remote areas). Our orders are generally sent out using a national courier but for local deliveries, we may use our own couriers. Orders can also be collected from the nursery by prior appointment and we are more than happy for you to do this if you prefer.

Our standard delivery charge is £15 plus VAT. This is for a next day delivery service in areas where this is available (i.e. mainland UK). For areas outside mainland UK, such as northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Scottish islands and mainland Europe, we can often offer delivery but will need to confirm the costs of these with you, so please call us to discuss on 01404 811229.  

There's usually no need to wait in for a standard delivery, our couriers will leave it in a safe place for you. If there is somewhere in particular you would like it left, please let us know at the time of ordering. For taller plants or a larger volume (particularly root ball trees), a pallet may be required. We will let you know at the time of your order as this will usually incur an additional fee. 

On arrival you should try to plant as soon as possible but, if the weather makes this impossible, cuttings will remain viable somewhere cold for 4 weeks. A cold shed or outside is fine but if the weather turns warm then put them into a fridge if possible. If you are unable to plant the rooted trees within ten days of arrival then we suggest that you unpack the bale and cover the roots with soil in a shallow trench to keep them moist.

It is important to look after your trees as they mature so now click on After-Planting Care for some useful guide-lines.
