    The medlar was well wrapped with a good root ball and about 4 feet tall. It was planted with a coating of mycorrhizal fungus and the website planting instructions followed.
    I was impressed.

  5. Great quality 5

    I have been hugely impressed by the quality of the trees and plants that I have purchased. They are extremely good value and are of the best quality that I have seen in a long time. I have already recommended Beechwood trees to my friends and really can not praise them highly enough. I have bought medlar trees before from other suppliers they cost considerably more and were no where near the quality and size of these ones.
