The mountain ash or rowan is a native European tree, especially in high altitudes where its robust hardiness ensures its survival. Once credited with magical powers and often planted near dwellings as an insurance against misfortune, it is widely planted in gardens, both as the species and in its many varieties. The trees tolerate a wide range of soils and sites, regularly producing huge crops of bright red berries in dense pendent bunches, which attract birds of all kinds. It succeeds particularly well in town gardens, and also when planted closely as a screen or informal large hedge.

    I ordered a Rowan Tree for our garden and was worried about it surviving it’s journey from Ireland. I need not have worried as the tree arrived in prime condition having been beautifully packed in straw and secured firmly within the box with twine. It was also was prevented from drying out with the root pot wrapped in cellophane. I was very impressed.
    It has now got pride of place in our garden and is so far surviving the transition. I am delighted. Thank you very much.
