Description:

The plain silver or common birch, sometimes called 'the lady of the woods' because of its outstanding elegance, is a great landscape feature, especially in autumn and while still young - older trees can become enormous, but without dominating or shading the garden too much. When planted 60cm (2ft) apart, the trees make a fine hedge, or may be grown 2.4m (8ft) apart as a screen or windbreak, which can be trimmed each winter. Growth is upright, later slightly weeping, especially the young outer stems - trim shoots off the trunk to reveal the attractive bark.

    Bought the silver birch for my new build. I have always loved silver birch trees but never had the opportunity to have somewhere to plant one. This tree was delivered perfectly in undamaged condition ready to plant. Looks amazing.

  2. Lovely shape 5

    My silver birch arrived in good time, well packaged. I soaked it for several hours before planting. It is a good specimen tree, with an even, balanced shape.
    Now to wait until the spring for the leaves to begin sprouting.
    Very pleased.

  5. This Classic Silver Birch Adds Elegance & Height Amidst Shrubs 5

    Posted by Colin Miller on 24th Nov 2020

    My 500 square metre garden (about 1/8th acre) was over planted by a previous owner with too many evergreen shrubs, buddleja & conifers so have removed a 10 ft conifer & put this silver birch in its place & removed the self sowing budleja. Nearby are hypericum hidcote with their almost year long bright yellow flowers. My local private nursery could not offer me the variety of birch I wanted until at least Spring 2021& double the price of that offered by Beechwood Nurseries. My order was acknowledged & I was given updates for the delivery & a time slot by DPD. So far, delighted with my purchase.
