Our tree saplings in 9cm pots (1Year+)


  • All trees in 9cm pots are at least a year old from seed. Germinated last year during spring and stratified the winter prior.
  • Moved into their own 9cm pots after the first few weeks in seed trays.

  • We continue to look after them for another year until the following spring to ensure their survival through their most vulnerable stage in life and on route to becoming established trees.

  • All trees can be pot grown, ground grown or trained for bonsai.

  • We recommend pot slipping the trees into much larger containers allowing the roots room, which will greatly increase their growth rate.
