Europe's largest container tree nursery, Barcham Trees of Cambridgeshire, is to offer an additional service to ensure its trees are not planted too deeply in their final position.

Customers can opt to have "The Barcham Line" painted at the point where the tree's root flare leaves the compost. This should still be visible at final planting, managing director Mike Glover explained.

"The correct planting depth is critical for every tree and yet so easy to achieve," he said.

This process requires two weeks' notice and costs £2.50 + VAT per tree.
