The mountain ash or rowan is a native European tree, especially in high altitudes where its robust hardiness ensures its survival. Once credited with magical powers and often planted near dwellings as an insurance against misfortune, it is widely planted in gardens, both as the species and in its many varieties. The trees tolerate a wide range of soils and sites, regularly producing huge crops of bright red berries in dense pendent bunches, which attract birds of all kinds. It succeeds particularly well in town gardens, and also when planted closely as a screen or informal large hedge.

    Trying to establish a garden on the windswept NW coast of Scotland is not easy. These excellent quality bare root rowans will have the very best chance of a start. Ordering was easy, the plants arrived promptly and were well packed. I would not hesitate in recommending Beechwood Nurseries/3 Fat Pigs. Thanks to all
