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.

Fast delivery, very competitive pricing
Good healthy looking plants, true to promised size, delivered very quickly. Too early to comment on growth.
Packaging somewhat challenging to remove (cling film and parcel tape) - did a good job of protecting the trees but would be easier to unpack if a sheet of paper/plastic was wrapped around branches before wrapping in cling film.
Overall very satisfactory, would order again.
