DESCRIPTION

The Glastonbury Thorn is a perfect unusual gift idea. This tree is steeped in myth and ancient British folklore; from St. Joseph of Arimathea and his magical staff to Cromwellian soldiers and relic superstition

The Glastonbury Thorn is an unusual and interesting tree that can flower up to twice a year. First in May and then again in winter, around Christmas time. The Glastonbury Thorn belongs to the same family as the Hawthorn and produces the same clusters of fragrant white flowers in the springtime. Autumn brings the familiar Haw berries, which provide a valuable food source for birds.

Each year the Queen is presented with a sprig of Glastonbury Thorn, by the people of Glastonbury for her Christmas table. Well if it is good enough for HRH....

The Glastonbury Thorn Tree gift includes each of the following:

  • One UK grown Glastonbury Thorn tree (1.8m - 2m or 5.9ft - 6.5ft in height)
  • Tree supplied in a 12-litre pot
  • One 24 inch tree guard (to protect against local wildlife such as rabbits)
  • One large tree stake (to give your tree extra support after it has been planted)
  • One rubber tree tie (to attach your tree to the tree stake)
  • One personalised greetings card of your choice
  • All boxed up into a very large box and delivered to the address of your choice.
