Standard Lime trees create a striking addition to a garden and can be a highly effective way to add a larger feature to the garden.
Lime is a traditional tree for planting in formal and semi formal situations. Otherwise known as the Small Leaved Lime (Tilia cordata), it produces small white flowers in July and has green heart shaped leaves which turn yellow in the autumn before falling off. It grows well in various soil types and is an excellent choice for pleaching and also pollards well. Avenues of pleached or pollarded Lime trees are often found in French villages and look highly attractive.
These standard Lime trees are planted in 45lt pots with handles which makes for easier handling whilst planting. Trees of this size should be planted using tree stakes and ties to help prevent them from blowing around too much in their first years of establishment.
Due to the size of these standard Lime trees, we will need to quote for delivery on an individual basis. Please telephone us to discuss delivery of your plants. Plants can, of course, be collected from our nursery free of charge.
In addition to standard Lime trees, we also supply Limes in a pleached format which are suitable for creating raised hedging screens. More information on pleached hedging available can be found here.
