Alder Gift Tree

A tree can make a wonderful gift as it will remind them of the occasion throughout its lifetime. The alder will be 20-40cm tall and will sit happily in its bag for a week before needing watering. Our gift trees come in a little jute bag with the following text inside a gift card:

The Alder tree is native to Britain and is ideally suited to wet areas as the roots encourage nitrogen-fixing bacteria and bind loose waterside soil together. These healthy bacteria improve poor soil so that the ground can take other plants and trees, so Alder is the perfect choice to bring difficult land into use in your garden. Ancient Britons planted Alder woods in wet, dark areas to help bring the area into production, but actually the woodlands provided good cover for fugitives! This led to our ancestors associating alder trees with mystical secrecy.

All our gift trees are grown to be the perfect size for best establishment and an ideal size for gifts. For most species this can range from 20-40cm above the root plug. If you would like to discuss specific sizes, please contact us.
