Planting promoted during National Tree Week

Nurseries and garden centres are backing National Tree Week, which runs until Sunday, by encouraging gardeners to plant more trees.

John Woods Nurseries is promoting trees that are easily maintained and do not require much room. Trees it is recommending for smaller gardens include Cercis 'Lavender Twist', Apple 'Scrumptious' and Cornus 'Venus'.

Grosvenor Garden Centre is introducing new varieties to its fruit and ornamental trees range to mark the occasion. They include Apple 'Christmas Pippin' and 'Rosette', Prunus 'Frilly Frock' and Sorbus 'Olympic Flame'.

Grosvenor plant buyer Pete Davies said: "Each variety has been chosen for its quality and distinctive features. National Tree Week is the perfect time to plant at least one new tree and any of these varieties would be a great addition to every garden - we even provide a stake and tie to give trees the best possible start."
