Small Town Garden
At Big Plant Nursery, we have a wide range of ornamental trees of all shapes and sizes, deciduous and evergreen. We produce a lot of the trees ourselves, such as Ginkgo biloba cultivars, Birch trees and Japanese maples. To complement our home-grown trees, we also have a selection of fantastic trees sourced and grown in the UK. Below are listed the trees which are always in stock, but we are able to get hold of most tree species, so if there is a particular tree you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact us at the nursery.
We have tried to make the website as informative as possible but if you find the choice difficult or would like to know more please don't hesitate to call the nursery for advice.
