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.

    Well packaged and arrived very quickly, without any fuss. Fast and reliable service at a busy time of year; other mail order nurseries could do with taking a leaf out of your book! Thank you: will happily recommend you.

    The packaging could have been more user friendly. While it certainly protected the plants, it took absolutely ages with a sharp knife to open up the full length parcel taping of the package.
