Bare rooted Italian Alder
I sent off for 340 Italian Alder and was impressed with the speed of delivery and the size and quality of the trees supplied, which arrived well packed to avoid damage and drying out of the roots. The roots systems are well developed and had obviously been lifted with care to keep them intact. I had not come across or bought anything from Beechwood/3 Fat Pigs prior to this purchase but, based on service and product, I would certainly recommend them!!!
