Product Information

The Mountain Ash, or Rowan, is an elegant tree that produces flat clusters of white flowers in late spring, followed by orange-red berries in early autumn.

A deciduous native tree, its pinnate, feather-like leaves turn yellow in autumn adding to the colour in your garden.

A tree that's recognised by the RHS as a Plant for Pollinators, the Mountain Ash is the perfect tree for wildlife as its flowers are laden with pollen and attract all manner of pollinators into the garden, plus the red berries are a favourite of garden birds.

This young tree has been grown in the UK from UK-sourced seed and is supplied as a plug-grown sapling 20-40cm from end to end, ready for immediate planting.

Top Tips

Add mycorrhizal fungi to the planting hole to help your new tree establish quicker.

Care Information

  • Best in an open sunny site is most soil types.
  • If your planting area is overgrown, cut the grass short and weed.
  • When planting, dig a hole 3 x the size of the plug and incorporate some organic matter.
  • Plant at the same level as the top of the plug - look for the mark on the tree where it originally started to grow above the ground.
  • Backfill gently around the tree and water in well. Don't compact the soil.
  • Stake young trees with a cane to prevent lopsided growth.
  • Add a tree guard if necessary.

 

Pruning Advice:

  • Hard pruning is not recommended, and mature trees require very little attention.
  • When pruning is required, prune only when fully dormant from late summer to before mid-winter to prevent 'bleeding'.
  • When young, any laterals can be removed to produce a clear trunk, along with any dead, diseased or damaged branches.
