Spring is here and what better way to celebrate than by planting a beautiful new tree in your garden? At Tree & Hedge we understand how important it is to keep your garden looking beautiful, so we are here to help you choose your perfect tree to bring your garden to life. We have a variety of trees to choose from, so here is a bit about the ones perfect for spring!

Flowering Cherry / Prunus: These delicate trees boast a magnificent display of pink blossoms in various shades, from soft blush to vibrant fuchsia. Popular varieties include the Accolade, with its double pink flowers, and the Kanzan, known for its cascading branches adorned with large, deep pink blooms. The temperatures in spring are ideal for root development, giving the tree a head start before the summer months. Planting these types of trees in spring also allows the tree to grow strong root systems before the harsh winter conditions. 

Red Maple:  Red Maples are show-stopping trees! They don’t just have beautiful red flowers in spring, their leaves turn into a fiery red explosion come autumn. These impressive trees are perfect for bigger yards because they grow quite large. They’ll also give you plenty of shade to relax under during the hot summer months. Planting a Red Maple in spring is ideal. Why? Because spring weather helps the roots grow strong before the summer heat hits. Strong roots mean a happy and healthy tree that will give you amazing flowers year after year.

Crabapple: Crabapple trees are a fantastic choice for any garden! They burst into life in spring with tons of small, beautiful red flowers. There are even different varieties you can choose from. For example, the ‘John Downie’ crabapple has lots of single, deep red flowers, while the ‘Everest’ has a bunch of rosy-red, double blooms. Planting a crabapple tree in spring is a great idea. It gives the tree time to get used to its new home before the hot summer hits. This helps it grow strong and healthy so it can reward you with a bounty of decorative fruits in autumn. With pretty flowers in spring and colourful fruits in fall, crabapple trees are truly a sight to see all year round!

Pyrus calleryana Chanticleer: The Chanticleer pear tree is a superstar of spring! It explodes with masses of beautiful white flowers that look just like cherry blossoms. Plus, it has shiny green leaves all summer that turn a gorgeous golden yellow in autumn. Planting this tree in spring gives its roots a chance to settle in before the hot weather hits. This helps the tree grow strong and healthy so it can shower you with even more blooms next spring!
