This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or lightly dappled shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Glossy green leaves provide a canopy that softly filters the light, while the peeling pink-tinged bark offers interest throughout the winter. This deciduous tree will shed its leaves in autumn, but not before they turn buttery shades when the temperatures start to drop.

    All the Betulas we supply are single-stemmed, but they can be planted close together to creat a multi-stemmed effect.

  • Garden care: Birches dont need much pruning, but you may want to remove any diseased or crossing branches. It is essential that any pruning work is carried out between late summer to mid winter as the sap will 'bleed' heavily at other times. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting and stake well.
