Weasdale Nurseries

Welcome to the website of Weasdale Nurseries, retail mail-order specialist suppliers of hardy trees and shrubs since 1950.

Servicing customers throughout EC Europe, our open-ground grown plants are carefully packed and shipped to our customers during the period of winter dormancy, from early November until mid-late April, ready for planting in their new surroundings.

Please take your time to move around our site and discover what we have to offer, how we do business, how to order, how to plant your trees and much more besides. We look forward to welcoming you as a new customer in the near future.   Useful hint: If you'd prefer to see larger text press "Ctrl" and the "+" key and you will zoom to a larger page size.  To return to a smaller size, press "Ctrl" and "-" (the key next to the +).

2013-2014 Season - Lifting and Despatching Update - 22nd April 2014

It's mild, it's moist and so the plants have all they need to start breaking bud.  Some roses, Cherries, Thorns Sorbus Acers and Malus have broken bud now and can't be packed now, but are OK for a wee bit longer if you are planning on collecting (as you can avoid damage to the delicate buds). Do give us a call to check on what plants you are interested in - always much quicker than e-mail or Googling - and we can talk you through what is and what is not available still. And you can talk to real, live, interested plants-people, not someone bored out of their mind in a call-centre.

The webshop has been updated again with new stock lines introduced and pricing revisions that sees many lines reduced in price.  As ever, we shall confirm any web orders after your automatic webshop receipt has been sent to you and our confirmation will reflect any possible size changes.

If you have a requirement for larger numbers of plants, we can supply container-grown stock outside the bare-root window using pallet-delivery service, but this is not cost-competitive for small quantities of plants.

Sundries, books, gloves and so forth are available year-round as usual.

Midges

Not long now until the wonderful midge makes its return into our lives but, worry not, as our Midge Hoods & Shirts are a fantastic defence against them.  Don't confuse ours with inferior products on the market whose mesh-size is just large enough to allow only the midge in.  Put "midge" into the search box above and find out how easy it is to be rid of their nuisances. 

PayPal

We have now added PayPal to our webshop payment options as we know that this a method favoured by millions for its simplicity.  Click on the Credit /debit card / PayPal option at the checkout and then PayPal for a swifter, cleaner process.

Ash Dieback (Chalara fraxinea)

This serious disease of Ash is now in the UK and you can find out more about it under "Useful Stuff".  Sadly, it means that no-one is allowed to sell or move this valuable tree until further notice. Please note, however, that this disease does NOT affect the Mountain Ashes, which are not true Ashes at all, but from a completely different and unrelated family.  LATEST NEWS:  We have recently been inspected by Defra both in hte nursery and a surrounding buffer-zone and are expecting permission to start selling Ash again into selected regions to be granted in the next few weeks.

A customer earlier this season was considering the protection of his new Weasdale Christmas trees from the various beasties that are / might be intent on eating or damaging them.  He found our various website notes and planting instructions helpful, but nowhere could he find what he should use to guard against attack by the Porcupines that his (it has to be said, North American) reference book said are likely to be a problem.  We think that a Skunk should do the trick....

Red Squirrels

Many of you may know that the nurseries here are a stronghold of the endangered native Red Squirrel and we are on the front line of the invading Grey Squirrel's territory.  For an "aaah!" moment, click here: Bold little Red Squirrel for a brief introduction to an endearing friend of ours....   Her first approach was in the depths of a bitterly cold winter 2009, when probably particularly hungry.
