1 Silver Birch Tree 6-8ft Tall in a 2L Pot


Betula pendula is a medium deciduous tree, typically reaching 15-25 m tall, exceptionally up to 39 m  , with a slender crown of arched branches with drooping branchlets.


Growing Details:

Common Name: Silver birch
Genus: Betula
Species: pendula
Skill Level: Beginner

Hardiness: Hardy
Soil type: Well-drained/light, Clay/heavy, Acidic, Moist, Sandy
Height: 2500cm

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.

Deciduous trees shed their leaves as an active process that evolved to conserve resources and protect the tree from being blown over in the windier winter months. Some birch trees turn yellow due to temperature changes in the summer / early autumn. There is nothing to worry about. The trees will re-grow the foliage again in the spring time.

  1. Silver Birch Tree 5

    Posted by mick such on 14th Jun 2022

    Ordered the 5ft tree and it took a week to arrive from NI. When it arrived it was well packaged in a strong cardboard box and supporting cane. No damage to tree. It was nicely potted up and wrapped in plastic./ Potting compost was still damp.
    Tree was nicely shaped and has loads of branches just starting to leaf out.
    After a few hours soaking it was placed in the hole and staked out.
    Very happy with the order and delivery. A+

    My Silver Birch arrived in July and is now happily growing in our garden.
    The leaves are starting to drop which is to be expected.
    I am very happy with the service received and the trees I have bought from this company and will certainly use them again.

  6. Silver Birch 6ft 4

    Posted by Margaret on 9th Jul 2021

    The Silver Birch arrived in good time, well packed and as described.
    After some water and fresh air it straightened up and is now planted in our garden. I am very happy with purchases I have previously made from this company and will certainly use them again.

    I only gave it a 4 star rating as it needs time to settle into the garden and start growing.

    I am sure it will be fine. I made a similar purchase about 18 months ago and it is growing well. I hope to buy another Silver Birch in the near future. Thanks

    Tree arrived promptly and was well-packaged. It is looking healthy and my gardener was amazed at the price for such a well-developed tree. It is planted in a sheltered spot and I will look forward to it maturing into a stunning tree. Thank you.

    This arrived promptly and was packaged very well. The tree seems healthy. I gave it a good drink of water for a few days and then planted it out. It is doing fine so far.

  10. Silver birch pedula tree 5

    Posted by lesley hornshaw on 20th Apr 2021

    The tree arrived very well packed, and is a lovely specimen. Obviously not very big but looked very healthy. We left it in a bucket of water overnight then planted the next day. It's growing nicely with plenty of lovely green leaves emerging. The tree is a replacement for a pieris which sadly died. I love this tree so much I ordered another one for my front garden to replace an acer which also sadly died. All in all I'd recommend this tree for a small garden (even two!)
