Betula utilis Jaquemontii - White Himalayan Birch

Product Description

West Himalayan Birch

Also known as the Kashmir birch, Betula utilis var. jacquemontii is a medium-sized, vigorous, fast-growing, deciduous tree grown for its brilliant white, papery bark (rich brown when young) which peels to reveal bands of creamy-pinky-buff. Not as tall as the silver birch, the West Himalayan birch has a broad crown and a graceful, open habit. Long brownish-yellow male catkins up to 12cm (5in) long appear in early spring; the greenish female flowers produce small winged seeds from small cone-like fruits in autumn. Dark green, triangular leaves have paler undersides, and shimmer in the breeze; they turn yellow, sometimes caramel coloured, in autumn. The bark can be power-washed or scrubbed to keep it pristine. Lovely planted in groups or as a multi-stemmed specimen, especially striking against a dark evergreen background in winter.

Plants delivered to your door

We ship to Ireland and Northern Ireland only. Packing and delivery for most orders will be €15 per order. However, larger plants and quantities will incur higher delivery charges (as much as €65 for pallet delivery). Delivery charges are calculated and added to your order at the checkout stage.

All plants that incur higher delivery charges are marked as 'Pallet delivery or collection required' or 'Oversize delivery/collection required'. To avoid higher delivery charges simply collect your order yourself from our nursery for free (use code 'collect' at checkout) or select smaller plants while shopping on our store.

The best part about plants is that they grow! We find it far more exciting to order smaller plants, pay less for shipping (and help the planet at the same time), and then watch them grow big in their permanent home.

Delivery

Shipping times are currently a maximum of 7-10 days from when we receive your order. We are currently using An Post, DPD and Prompto Courier companies.

Once your order has shipped it may arrive the next day or it can take 2 or 3 days for the parcels to arrive, we take special care to pack our plants in such a way that they will still arrive in perfect condition after several days in transit.
Delivery charges are calculated & added to your order at the checkout stage.

Potted plants

9cm pots

A 9cm pot is about the size of a takeaway coffee mug, it is an ideal size for planting Herbs, Alpines & Heathers. We supply some young Trees, Conifers & Shrubs in 9cm pots for cost effective planting, they will just require a little extra care in the first year or two, mainly making sure they don’t get swamped by weeds.

1.3L pots

A good size for Hedging as the plants are not too small but are still good value, we supply some unusual shrubs in this size too.

2L pots

Some young ornamental trees and most common shrubs are available in this cost effective size.

3L pots

A lot of our more unusual Shrubs and some trees are available in this size.

4L, 5L and 7.5L pots

Many trees and more unusual Shrubs are available in these larger sizes, good for a more instant effect.

10L Pots

This size is mainly for ornamental Trees.

Bareroot plants

1-2ft Bareroot

Plants will be easier to plant than larger plants but they will need to be kept totally clear of weeds for them to do well and they will take several years to offer much impact.

2-3ft Bareroot

Plants are a good economical choice, they are nearly big enough to not get swamped by weeds.

3-4ft Bareroot

This size is a good option for tree whips and Hedging as they will be well above any competition from weeds yet the roots won’t be too large for planting and they are not too tall to be knocked around by the elements too much.

4-5ft Bareroot

This size is the best choice for hedging when an instant effect is desired or to get tree whips off to a head start, they will need a larger hole for planting and they will need to be checked that they are not getting loose in the ground from time to time after planting. This size is more likely to get battered by the weather, so in very exposed areas it may be best to plant in March after the worst of the winter has passed. This tree grade may require staking.

We source our plants from the very best growers in Ireland and beyond. Each plant is chosen for its useful, fruitful, and beautiful attributes and its value to the Irish garden and landscape. We stock an outstanding range from native to unusual to rare.

Environment

We manage our nursery on organic principles. All of our potting, planting, lifting, and weeding is done by hand and we use peat-free, organic compost. We strive to have the least impact on the planet as possible and are always looking for ways we can improve.

Quality

Plant quality is especially important to us. When we gather your order we pick the best possible size and shape for the grade, and we always check for healthy roots, grafts, leaves, and other indicators of overall plant health.

We also regularly inspect our nursery for any signs of pests or disease, track every single batch of plants from source to soil, and destroy any plants that appear to be infected with anything that could cause harm to the environment.

Service

We have a skilled team who go to great lengths to make our plants arrive to you in the best possible condition. Our priority is to supply an inspiring range of top quality plants with excellent customer service whether you are using our website or visiting us in person.
