The grower has selected and improved forms of standard tree ranges and now has new varieties, which are available as bare root, root balled or container grown, in commercial numbers.  It has named them its ‘Select’ range. 

The new range includes: Betula pendula ‘Select’ – a recent introduction that boasts an attractive upright pyramidal shape with impressive white stem colour. Marketing director Adam Dunnett said: "Its ascending canopy makes it an excellent alternative to wild type Birch if space is limited."

The range also includes: "Prunus padus ‘Select’ – offering a strong growing, tight upright, uniform habit with smaller leaves than Prunus padus Watereri. A more vigorous grower than ‘Albertii’. "Just the right combination to make this lesser used native more popular as a landscape tree," says Dunnett.

"Quercus robur ‘Select’ – a good semi-upright, strong growing, uniform selection of the species. More open than Quercus robur fastigiata Koster. 

"Tilia cordata ‘Select’ – a much improved form of Tilia cordata ‘Greenspire’ with darker leaves, vigorous growth and uniform habit."

Along with introducing new varieties Wyevale Nurseries explored growing techniques and planting concepts. 

Dunnett added: "Our specialist range of pleached trees, true multi stem trees and pre-formed hedging in troughs provide instant impact and stunning architecture to planting schemes – commercial or domestic.
