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.

Quick, easy and lovely product
It was easy to order and I was kept updated as to when the trees were to be delivered, which was very quick! My friend and I planted them and now we have a little copse called Mole's corner (as the moles kept appearing here) for her alpacas and visitors to enjoy. Hopefully will grown into a lovely area for children to investigate when they visit. Will definitely order some more this month!!

Planted and ready to grow
