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.

    I only ordered three Rowan's to see what they were like, we are impressed at the speed of delivery even though the trees are young and bare rooted, they are very good quality and are a very good price.

    We are about to order more trees also some shrubs.

    We have no hesitation in recommending Beechwood Trees

  2. Bare Root Rowan Trees 5

    Very pleased with our purchase of three bare root rowan trees 2 - 3ft. They were as described with good root systems.

    The items were very securely packaged and delivered within a few days, despite the New Year break.

    Would certainly order from Beechwood Trees.
