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.

    Trees all already planted and starting to show green shoots.
    Will make a lovely privacy screen in the future.
    Packaging expertly done so not even one bud was damages.

    A good and efficient service, will have to wait a few years before we really know how the trees are of course, but so far, so good. Thanks
