Double Stem Corkscrew Bay Tree

Our tree featured for July is the stunning Double Stem Corkscrew Bay Tree. The intertwined stem is made up from two bay trees that have been hand nurtured and twisted around one another. Perfect for the wedding season this tree is the perfect symbolic representation of two people coming together.

Bay laurel leaves are most aromatic throughout the summer as this is when the essential oils within the leaves are at their highest. The best time for harvesting is in the morning after all the dew has evaporated from the leaves.

Our twisted bays aren’t just great for wedding gifts but perfect for birthdays too. If someone you know has a birthday this month and they’re really into their cooking then this will be the ultimate gift to send to them on their special day. Not only is this tree useful in the kitchen but it’s stylish for the garden too. Fragrant evergreen leaves are extra bushy and the stem just looks divine.

Bay trees are quite easy to look after. They are slow growing and barely need anything in regards to pruning apart from in the summer when they grow more. They are more drought tolerant than other plants and will thrive in a UK garden.

Delivery Tip: This is one of our larger trees and is delivered in a 12L pot, have it sent straight to the recipient so they can unbox it and get it out in their garden straight away.

Lemon Tree Gift

Send a scrumptious Lemon Tree Gift for a birthday in July. The zesty fruits are a delight to the senses and the tree is super productive often fruiting and flowering up to 4 times a year!

As lemon trees are usually from shores much warmer than our own, when grown in the UK they don’t tend to follow a specific fruiting season. Mostly fruiting in winter the trees will continue to ripen into the spring meaning the recipient will have lemons to hand to pick on their birthday. Just in time for a birthday G&T or maybe even a delicious lemon birthday cake.

Our Lemon varieties are established trees in 5L pots and of extremely high quality. They will brighten up a conservatory or porch with colourful fruits and zesty fragrances.

Stella Cherry Tree

If there’s one thing that the Stella Cherry Tree is known for is that it is able to produce a massive crop of sweet, delicious cherries. The fruits are deep red almost black in colour and they ripen from mid-July onwards. What more could you want on your birthday?

This tree can be planted out into the garden and as it is grafted onto a colt rootstock it will grow to a height of 3-5m (10-16ft). This makes is the perfect addition for medium and large sized gardens where the tree can grow happily to its full size.

The Stella cherry variety is more tolerant to frosty conditions so is perfect for UK gardens, especially northern ones when kept in a sheltered sunny spot.

If you know someone with a birthday coming up and they look baking, cooking and all things fruity then this is the tree gift for them!
