Autumn is upon on us and it is a stormy one this year!  Storm Ali may have past, but other weather warnings are coming at us and the damage caused can be considerable.

Fallen trees can damage much more than just your garden. 

So, if you have older trees which are at risk of falling and causing property damage, now is the time to take action.  Removing damaged limbs and branches and thinning out the trees, will help improve stability stable in high winds and storms.

It is worth doing this now before it becomes an expensive operation after a tree has fallen and has to be removed.

We are available to come out and assess your trees for you before the next storm arrives.

Trees to give you autumn colour

Japanese maple (Acer palmatum)

Perfect for…small gardens

Japanese maple are small, deciduous trees, which are perfectly happy to grow in large containers, in smaller gardens. Make sure to fill tubs with loam-based compost, such as John Innes No 2 and keep the soil moist. A slow-release fertiliser or liquid feed is also a good idea in spring. Transplant Japanese maples into bigger tubs every year or so – April/September is the best time to do this. Make sure to cover or wrap the pots in winter, as the roots can be susceptible to frost. Japanese maples thrive best in slightly acidic, well-drained loam.

Tupelo (Nyssa sylvatica)

Perfect for…large gardens

Nyssa trees can grow beyond 12 metres, however have gorgeous orange colour throughout the autumn.They are not suited to alkaline soils and will grow in moist, fertile ground, with shelter from the wind. 

Spindle (Euonymus europaeus)

Perfect for…medium sized gardens

Spindle trees have extremely pretty yellow/red coloured foliage and gorgeous red fruits which split during autumn. They grow ultimately to 4 metres and will happily grow in any type of soil – but well-drained conditions and sun or partial shade is vital.
