There is always so much happening at Winter Hill Tree Farm so we thought a blog would be a good way to let everyone know what we do and how we do it!
Many people assume that to produce top quality mature trees we simply plant them then sit back and watch them grow! The reality is slightly more involved.
At Winter Hill we grow most of our trees in pots so our customers can buy and plant their trees all year-round. That means repotting the trees each year as they grow and pruning to ensure they retain lovely fibrous root systems ready to adapt quickly to their new permanent home when sold.
With over 300 varieties of mature trees and advanced hedging in production on the farm there is always something beautiful to see as each plant changes with the seasons. This blog will provide an opportunity for us to share some of those spectacular, but often very small moments of colour and form. We hope you will enjoy it.
