Trees and hedges are supplied and planted throughout the year in the Glasgow area, but the best time for planting trees and hedges is over the bare root season, approximately November through to April depending on the weather. Not only do you benefit from lower prices, but it is better for the trees and hedging plants as they are in their dormant season.
What are bare-root plants? Bare-root plants (mostly hedges) are grown in open ground before being prepared for sale during the dormant winter season, and delivered in bags with no soil around their roots. Some shrubs come as bare-roots, but typically it is hedging plants and small trees. If you are looking to install a Beech hedge for example, sourcing and planting them as bare-root specimens over the winter is the way to go.
What are rootball plants? Rootball plants (mostly trees) tend to be larger, and are delivered with their roots and soil encased in a biodegradable hessian bag. As with bare-root plants, these represent a more cost-effective way to plant, and are better for the plants themselves as they are in their dormant season.
Over the winter months Tom is available to supply and plant bare-root and rootball hedges, trees and shrubs in and around Glasgow, and further afield for larger jobs. The season for both bare-root and rootball plants varies slightly from year to year, but is usually from November till April - in milder years the season may be shorter, and during longer winters the season can begin sooner and last longer. As a registered plant supplier, you can be assured of utmost quality and attention towards plant health. Peace of mind comes from a follow-up service, and comprehensive instructions provided to you after planting to help ensure successful establishment of all your plants.
