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.

    I was worried when the package arrived and the trees were tightly bound up. On unwrapping, however, I found them to be excellent trees in great condition with good roots. I will definitely be ordering more.

    The silver birch trees arrived in a good time and well packaged. On opening, the trees were in an excellent condition and ready for planting. I am planting an area of my garden with trees to attract more wildlife and have already placed another order.
