Planting Stock Availability & Prices

Spring 2018

We are pleased to offer the following stock subject to being unsold and to our usual terms and conditions of sale. Most crops are grown specifically for Christmas tree production and rigorously selected from the best available crops on British and European nurseries.

 

Prices which exclude VAT are based on collection in co-extruded black/white bags, continental multi-ply paper sacks, or boxes from our premises at Castle Bytham, just ten miles North of Stamford and only two miles from the A1. Nationwide delivery is available by carrier, Palletline or road haulier at cost.

 

Plant age explained: The numbers used to designate plant age refer to the number of years the plant has spent in the nursery. The first figure is the years spent as a seedling, ‘+’ denotes transplanting and the second figure the years spent as a transplant spaced evenly in rows.

 

  • A 2+1 is a three year old plant which spent two growing seasons as a seedling and one as a transplant.

 

  • A 3-0 is a three year old plant which has been grown in a seedling bed without transplanting, but mechanically undercut in situ to produce a more fibrous root system, sometimes described as a ‘1u1u1’.

 

  • A 1u1 therefore is a two year plant undercut at least once.

 

Nordmann Fir undercuts are recommended for machine planting. Ask us for more information on the Nordmann stock best suited for your conditions, particularly the benefits of choosing seed orchard origin plants.

 

Seed orchard trial reports are available on request.
