Brilliant as always!
I've got hundreds of trees from Beechwood Nurseries growing on my croft. They always take really well. Common alder is excellent as a fast growing wind break in a wet, windy location.
Simply the best!
What can I say, this is a recurrent annual order for us at Portree Angling Club in our habitat restoration project. The trees supplied are always in excellent condition and are the size advertised unlike some other vendors!
Another batch of great trees from Beechwood
Another great delivery from this seller. The trees are well rooted and generously sized.
