Features of Pine trees
Our range of Pine trees
Although many species of Pine can reach upwards of 30m in height, our selection are much more small-scale - particularly Pinus sylvestris Chantry Blue which is a dwarf conifer and can be kept at low heights with little maintenance. All of our Pine trees are currently in shrub form, and are suitable as feature trees or specimen plants, as well as for filling borders. They're great for providing interest all year round and the way in which their needles droop creates a graceful feel.
Planting Pine trees
Pine trees are really quite versatile when it comes to preferred soil conditions, growing well in chalk, loam, sand and clay, as well as both acidic and alkaline soils, as long as they are fairly well drained. Pine trees do prefer to be in full sun and if planted in shade you may find that they don't grow as quickly and the foliage may be less vibrant.
