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 - 4th August 2014

Well, that's it now for bare-root plants.  After two years of very late Springs, this year's has come more or less on cue.  The Beech were a bit early (curiously) and the Ash extraordinarily late, but the rest behaving as normal.  This has meant that orders for the next season (starting in November) have been building earlier, but do give us a call to discuss your requirements.  And you can talk to real, live, interested plants-people, not someone bored out of their mind in a call-centre.

You can place an order on line but remember, if for live plants, it won't be shipped until November.  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.


The midge has now made 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. 


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:  The anticipated lifting of movement restrictions has been a-squashoed, so it looks as though Ash are off the menu for some time to come.

A customer recently 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.
