Purging Buckthorn (Rhamnus cathartica)
Displaying yellow-green flowers in spring, these trees can grow to be 10m tall. The name "purging buckthorn" comes from the laxative properties of its berries. Many different types of species find food and shelter in it, and its dense growth draws in birds searching for somewhere to build nests. These trees are 15–60 cm tall, and they are cultivated from seed in cells. Most of the time, cell-grown trees can be planted year-round provided they receive the proper care.
Our trees are planted, grown and cared for on site. This means, once the seeds are delivered to us we plant them, establish them in our polytunnels and then harden them off. The trees you are delivered have been with us since seed and we look after them until the moment they leave.
Every tree is handpicked and packaged with the utmost care and attention to ensure your trees are delivered fighting fit to help against climate change.
