Bare Root Season from November to March

Together with Bare Root and Root Balled Trees, the great advantages to bare root hedging and forestry are as follows:-

1: They are a much cheaper alternative to pot grown plants and are very commonly brought for hedging.

2: Much more cost effective – especially if you are planting in a larger area.

3: Much easier and cheaper to transport.

4: Only planted in Winter, so low maintenance after planting.

5: Great selection of varieties – More are grown as Bareroot.

6: Plants are dormant in winter – always the best time to transplant any stock.

7: Excellent for Wildlife

If you have any enquires of any plant requirements, please do not hesitate to contact our Sales Team, you can either ring the office and speak to Nigel, Vince or Sadie on 01945 464383 or email us at; sales@tamarnurseries.co.uk we will be happy to help.

SARWH – The Queen’s Green Canopy
Johan planting a Magnolia tree at Sandringham

The Magnolia Heaven Scent, presented to the Sandringham Estate by SARWH has now been planted in the Public Arboretum at Sandringham, which is opposite the car park. Please find attached a photo of the planting which was carried out by (from left to right) Edward Parsons Sandringham Land Agent, Simon Ridgway our president, Johan Huibers our second Vice President, and Martin Woods Head Gardener Sandringham Estate.  Also in attendance were a few members of SARWH Council and other assistant gardeners from the Estate.

 Johan Huibers, of Tamar Nurseries, very kindly donated the tree and asked that the £395 put aside to cover the cost of the tree be added to the President’s Charity Fund for Norfolk Blood Bikes.

Johan received a letter from HRH Prince Charles in which our tree is mentioned, and below is an extract from said letter.

I have seen a picture of the magnificent “Heaven Scent” magnolia that you recently very kindly planted in the Arboretum at Sandringham as part of the Sandringham and Royal Warrant Holders Association Queen’s Green Canopy project.  It looks superb and I am hoping to see it in person when I am next at Sandringham.

Selection of photos of stock looking good.
